15 minute DIY tablecloth

here's a quick and super duper easy DIY project for anyone!
and don't tell me you can't sew, because neither can i!

what you need:
*3 metres of pretty fabric (i got mine today from Spotlight.
they have 30% off store wide until 8pm tomorrow night!
i got this fabric from the curtain section. the fabric i used is 120cm wide
reduced to $7 a metre, so that's a good priced tablecloth!)
*scissors, pencil and measuring tape

my table is 2 metres long, so i cut the fabric down to 240cm.
(i like to have some leftover for another project)

i'm a shocker at doing things to plan.
i just go by eye, fold over about a 1.5cm edge and go for it.
do both the shorter ends of the fabric first.
so as you can see, i'm no perfectionist!
ta da!
my new duck egg blue tablecloth.
and i promise, it took only 15 minutes to sew.
table before....
what are you waiting for?
go and make your own now! it's too easy!
