Tabletop Circle Fabric Craft Project

Here's a fun project for those who like decorated tables but don't love the hassle of tablecloths. You can use it either to update an old table or to project a valuable tabletop.

Skill Level:


Butcher paper or brown kraft paper to use as pattern
1/2 to 1 yard of decorative fabric, depending on size of table
White lining fabric (same amount of yardage as above)
Matching thread
Sewing machine (we used Brother model SE-350)
Glass top, cut to fit tabletop

1. Spread butcher or kraft paper on the floor. Place the tabletop face down on top of paper. Trace around the
edge of the table. Cut out the pattern.

2. Place the pattern on the back side of fabric and pin. Trace around the fabric 1/2
inch from pattern edge. Remove pins. Repeat for white lining.

3. Pin the two pieces of fabric together, right sides facing. Stitch around
the circle with 1/2-inch seam, leaving an 8-inch opening for turning
cover right side out. Clip notches into seam allowance.

4. Turn the cover right side out, folding under allowance at opening; press flat.

5. Top stitch the circle 1/4 inch from edge all around. Place on table and top with cut glass piece.

Love it! I have a blass top kitchen table and 6 grandchildren--the oldest is 10 and youngest just turned 2. Can can imagine how many times we have to clean the table when they come to visit or spend the weekend. This will work for me and I'll add a little twist for my purposes. Grandma is going at vinyl on the top. Thanks for the easy, GREAT idea.
