This Friday I am having a Dinner party for my friends who are moving :( Sad that they are leaving... but excited to host a dinner party! It is going to be super casual, we are having a Taco Bar with Fresh Mojitos and Tres Leches! Pics and recipes soon to come....
In the meantime this is my 1st week as a stay-at-home Mom so I have a full to-do list! "We" (Finn and I) have already washed the dishes, clothes, sheets, baby clothes, gone to the petting zoo at the library and we are on nap #2 and its only Monday... go us!
I need to get to work on some stuff for the Dinner Party, so meet the Framed Tablecloth. This couldn't be easier!
All you need is : (This fits a breakfast area table that seats 4)
1 1/2 yds. of fabric
6 yds. of quilt binding.
Only 2 "ingredients"! The binding usually comes in 3 yd packs and it is about $2.00 a pack from JoAnn Fabrics. I found this amazing floral fabric at Garden Ridge Pottery of all places and it was $3 for 3 yards! I think I might make half-curtains for our kitchen out of the extra fabric. I like to mix colors, so for the binding I got a buttery yellow. All you have to do is attach your quilt binding all the way around.
There you have the Framed Tablecloth, custom made and under $7.00! Looking at the picture of the Tablecloth laid out makes me think that it would be super cute as a picnic blanket! Too bad I live in Houston and it is 200 degrees and I hate being outside... but it would still be cute. Now I need to get to work on my never ending to-do list! Wish me luck!
