It looks like I'm on a train with wooden spools!
They follow me. Wherever I am, there they are, or so it looks like.
A couple of week ago I went to Hancock Fabrics, I was bringing my daughter to meet some friends and since it was very close to this store, I decided to get in. As usual, I immediately headed to the back of the store for the clearance section.
What did I find there? Spools, rustic ribbon on wooden spools! ;)
Their 6.99 price was marked down to 1.40. I don't know what I like more, the stools or the ribbons.
I knew I was going to buy some of the spools so, my first thought was to use them on a tablecloth, that's why I also grab 2½ yards of this fabric (Quiltologie Coral), to pair them up.
I came home quickly, got the sewing machine and began my project, taking lots and lots of pictures with my phone.
The picture of how two side panels were added on each side of the main piece of fabric because the fabric had a width of only 45".
The picture of how the corners were rounded.
The picture of how all the edge of the fabric was folded upwards, placing the ribbon on it to create a beautiful ribbon edge!
Hey, did I tell you that most of those pictures were taken twice? Hmmm, sometimes that perfect shot doesn't come after the third or fourth try, too bright, too dark, too blurry...
The thing is, all those detailed pictures are gone! :( Somebody took the card off my phone and puff the pictures disappeared! Or so, that's what they say.
Anyways, it was pretty easy and I know you can totally make a tablecloth like this, even without a sewing machine and all the detailed pictures that somehow disappeared.
The tablecloth was the one that reminded me to share with you the how to spray paint those old chairs.
Go to your nearest fabric store, grab some yards of fabric on your color of choice and create something you really want!
