weekly photo challenge: angular, or how to make a tablecloth

An”gu*lar, a. [L. angularis, fr. angulus angle, corner…] 1. Relating to an angle or to angles; having an angle or angles; forming an angle or corner; sharp-cornered; pointed…

Making a tablecloth can be quick & easy! You can see from the piccies how to square up your fabric, if you want it to be square.  Just take one corner over & up to the margin. flatten out the fabric to be certain the resulting triangle is even on all sides, then cut. Quite simple, and it allows you to use the full width of whatever fabric you’re using. Hem the sides, and you’re done.

Easy peasy!

Here’s the fabric I used ~

      Decided not to do napkins as the fabric isn’t soft.
      (I’d originally bought it thinking blouse, but decided definitely not, after washing didn’t soften it enough.)
      Am thinking maybe a little tote bag, but not the fancy zipped styles that LubbyGirl loves to do – not enough patience!
      Am undecided. . . 🙂

        Yesterday I saw this amazing stall and she sold bag handles (leather) and then a leather clasp fastener. It would look so professional!

          Leather – oooo! Sounds yummy! I see lots of antique brass fastenings for handbags & purses, totes & carryalls, but rarely leather. Didn’t happen to get a name, did you?
