Project finished–Shabby Chic` Tablecloth

I got my tablecloth finished ahead of time due to an amazing find, we had started to clear out the cupboard under the stairs and right at the very back was my full sized sewing machine and….. a Janome 4 thread overlocker which I had clean forgotten about yay!

 

Material is Curtain Fabric from Terry’s Fabrics 

It clean halved the time to overlock the edge of the fabric for me.

I threaded it up, turned it on and it worked like a dream.

Perfect stitching

You can see the hem the piece it cuts away as it sews.

All of the edges finished so now lets add the trim.

Just using pins to tack the trim in place.

Once the trim is tacked all of the way around it is ready to sew in place on the sewing machine.

All finished and added to the table, just like Grandma used to have. Perfect.

Terry’s Fabrics have a wide selection of materials and affordable prices.

Beautiful, Jak and so much fun to dabble in other crafts. I have been sewing a bit myself! I have heard great things about the Janome serger. It is on my wish list! Love the fabric and the trim! xxx Ann Marie
