    Picnic table cloth

    I am using scraps to make a tablecloth for picnic table. I want it reversible. What to use in middle? Batting? Flannel?

    It all depends on how thick you want it to be. If you use flannel, be sure to wash it before you sew it because it shrinks a lot.

    you can also use Thermore, it's a very thin, drapeable, poly batting

    I would suggest the flannel. Pre-wash it first.

    I'd use flannel to keep it thin and easier to wash and dry.
