Tablecloths to fit my large dining room table were quite pricey and I had a very tight budget. One day while folding laundry, the idea came to measure a twin flat sheet on my table. Off I went to the fabric store for appropriate lace, edged one, then another I'd purchased from a yard sale. No one knew the difference but me.

We have a large dining table and it's hard to find a table cloth that fits and doesn't cost a arm and a leg.
Instead of trying to find a window to make these valances fit on, I decided to use them for side table covers. They are also foam backed so anyone placing a wet item on the cloth, will not spoil the finish of the table.
Curtains can be a great inexpensive substitute for more expensive tablecloths. They can frequently be found on sale and may not require a lot of altering for a one time use.
Bed sheets can be repurposed into a multitude of things, even tablecloths. This is a page about using bed sheets as tablecloths.
