An impressive array of authors signed books on the first night of the Creative Connection. Coverings for 28 bar tables were a bit daunting for a person with no sewing machine, but I was up to the challenge. For me, fabrics that look good with a rough cut edge or have a finished look without hemming are life savers. In this case, jersey fabrics came to the rescue. Their cut edges are very forgiving.
Once I had my table toppers cut to size, I dressed them up with a couple of very simple treatments.
In a previous post on collecting, I showed off my vast selection of clothespins. Not only are they fun to collect and display, but they can be put to work from time to time.
Just thread a couple of small lengths of scrap (about 6-7" long) through the clippy part, then clip them to the edge of your tablecloth. Instant! Super cute!
Mayarts was kind enought to donate this fabulous burlap loop ribbon for the event, and I feel in love with it.
