    Laminated cotton

    I bought yardage of laminated cotton to use as a tablecloth. Does anyone have any sewing tips for finishing the edges?

    if you have a serger, you could finish the edge with serging. or, there is no reason you can't just bind it.

    Thank you. I'll give it a try - binding.

    Your other option, if your machine is heavy-duty enough, fold over 2x and stitch.

    I would think folding over once and stitching would work to make a nice hem.
