Remember this piece of fabric?
I've been making a lot of mess.
My dream was to create those type of holiday decorations
I started out by cutting
a 40x40 inch square cloth to drape diagonally
over my new green tablecloth from Target.
I used a decorative stitch and a 3/4 inch seam allowance.
Keep your needle down into the fabric wthile turning a corner.
Not every corner will look the same,
but it turns out fine.
This is easy, 'cuz you just sew all the way around,
Start with a full bobbin,
the decorative stitches take a lot of thread.
A rolled hem looks great,
but takes more ironing and precision.
There was still enough to make one for the coffee table.
I made a long cloth for the fireplace mantle.
The "Science Shelf" is a fall school project Beka and I worked on.
