Default 60 Inch Table Topper

In 1991 our Interior Decorator made all the curtains in our kitchen using the pink, purple, blue and other colors in the fabric, then gave me an extra meter of the fabric to make a cover for our new kitchen, I made sure I put this fabric in a safe place (28 years ago), so i wouldn't forget about it. I finally located the fabric, and this past week made the table topper, without a pattern, wasn't sure how to get it round, until I found I had a circular ruler. Now I60-inch-table-topper-aug-28-2019.jpg can go on holidays, as I am caught up with the last of those items I wanted to get finished.

Nice job. I just made a table topper but could not figure out how to make it round, so mine dangle over on the edges.

Very lovely. It will be a nice topper. I think we all have something like this that hides on us for a quarter of a century. How time flies. It looks grand and will well be a great addition.

I have used string and a thumbtack to make a circle before.

I hope you still had the curtains! I bought matching fabric for the wall paper in our kitchen, for dining room placemats and you guessed it. Years later still undone, and we moved into a different house. Oh well. Finally gave the placemats away for someone else to deal with. I love your table covering though, even with or without curtains LOL
