Kitchen ta­Ble facelift

Landscape (UK) - - In The Kitchen -

A pretty new table­cloth can re­fresh the look of the kitchen. Mak­ing one to mea­sure en­sures the per­fect fit, re­gard­less of ta­ble size. A table­cloth should over­hang the edge by 10-12in (25-30cm). Larger over­hangs can get in din­ers’ way, or even be ac­ci­den­tally pulled off the ta­ble. For a large square or rec­tan­gu­lar ta­ble, the length and width are mea­sured and the pre­ferred amount of over­hang added, plus a 3in (7.5cm) al­lowance on each side. When the fab­ric is cut, a hem is turned up and tacked, with each cor­ner mitred to re­duce bulk. Ma­chine stitch­ing se­cures each edge be­fore the cloth is pressed to fin­ish.
