Cutting the corners of THE CHRISTMAS TABLECLOTH.
Well after my pondering was through this morning I did it. Snip, snip, snip! I found on an edge it is a Hallmark Fabric. Whatever that may mean!
First I folded right side in down the length of the fabric and pinned the edges straightening to the very best of my ability! Then I folded in half cross ways lining up all four corners. Nest I trimmed a bit as to even things up.
Now for my biggest platter! The big one the girls fired for me as a special gift! Perfect as the template for a big easy curve!
And then to mark oh so carefully! Instead of the Tailor's chalk (they were out of dark) I had to buy a fabric marking pin that becomes invisible with heat.
Then the cutting is done and I am ready to sew tomorrow!
