  1. I love it! Very impressive and I'm always of the mind set that you can "just cut it up" to make something work!

    1. You're totally right, Kate. Now that I think about that way, I should be doing things like this more often! My mindset is definitely changing to be more like that. Thanks for the compliment!

    1. Thanks, Jann! You're helping me feel less sheepish about it... maybe I should be focusing on the problem-solving aspect of the project!

    1. I'm glad you like it! It's really a pretty easy project. I just started sewing a few years ago! And a lot more lately :)

  4. I don't think it's weird to sew a 2.99 tablecloth. You also invested your time into shopping for them. I'm crazy too, I will always try to find a way to make do. I hate that we live in such a "throw away" mentality. I save all my gift bags and tissue paper. I'm always the crazy lady at the birthday party, grabbing all the bags and folding them up to reuse. You aren't a total nut job, just thrifty and talented!

  5. So cute! I love using vinyl tablecloths outdoors, but I've never added a cute ruffle. It makes such a difference. Thanks so much for sharing. Have a wonderful day!

    1. Thanks Brooke! It's funny you say that, because now I'm comparing this one to the plain oblong one I have for my rectangular table, and the plain one it bugging the heck out of me! But I won't go that far... this time :)

    1. Thanks, Lisa! I am proud that I was able to problem solve instead of starting from scratch again!
