We love the style but the slat-type look is just no good for clean-up. All last summer we went without a tablecloth and let me tell you it was really pretty grody cleaning up all the little pieces of food that get wedged in between the slats…can we say SUPER yuk!
Ok, next put your tablecloth on your table all centered and such and pull the corners out into a triangle, like the picture above. Then, just cut the triangles off with a pair of scissors leaving yourself a little wiggle room to sew a seam. You will be left with 4 squares of vinyl tablecloth scraps at the end of this…save them for another fun project!
Then, take your tablecloth over to your sewing machine and match up the raw edges from each corner, making sure your tablecloth is inside out!
Then, flip your table cloth right-side out and push out the corner seams so they are nice and pretty.
