The idea for this series came when I was at the thrift store looking for inspiration. I was hoping something would jump out at me and I would be hit with endless ideas. That was not the case but as I was about the leave I saw this table cloth (one of those plastic ones) on a shelf and decided that there had to be something I could do with it-$1.99-who could go wrong. NOTE to those who will be donating their old tablecloths to the thrift store: could you please wash it first and not take it there with remnants of your last meal still on it.
My first idea is:
A reusable shopping bag.
For this project you will need:
2 pieces of table cloth 24x20 for the bag
2 pieces of table cloth 4 x22
1. Start by cutting your table cloth pieces to size. You can use a rotary cutter or a pair of scissors. One thing that is tricky with a table cloth is that you can't iron out the wrinkles so you have to work around folds and wrinkles. Luckily you don't have to worry about grain or other fabric stretching issues.
That's it. An easy and useful repurpose project. Happy Sewing!!
