Wow, it has been a while since I have posted anything. I think I have been hibernating, waiting for winter to be over, so I can get back outside:) Anyway, here is something I threw together this weekend.
A coworker brought in a bunch of fabric that was left over from her husband’s art class that he teaches. We all got to go through the bag and take what we wanted. I saw this fabric and immediately fell in love. The only problem was that it was in two separate pieces and each piece was missing a square out of it. I took it anyway because it was free, and I figured I could do something with the fabric.
I cut the little pieces in half again, to that I could make a long row on each side of the two bigger pieces. Thankfully, whoever cut out the square to begin with, did it exactly in the middle of the fabric.
After that, I ironed the fabric, and I just started stitching everything together to form one large rectangle. Unfortunately, these pieces don’t line up together, so you can definitely tell the fabric was sewn together. I decided, since it was free, I wasn’t going to care that much.
After everything was stitched together, I just had to hem up the sides, which didn’t take very long at all. I didn’t use a backing piece, so if you turn it over, you can see the seams. It’s just a tablecloth though:)
And here she is on my table, with the leftover Valentine’s Day centerpiece. If fits perfectly on my table and I think the pink and red actually go quite nice with a Valentine’s Day theme. Too bad that is over with:)
Not bad for free fabric. And if I decide to do something else with it later, I can change it out.
Thanks for looking!
