Dressing The Round Table – Round table cloths and toppers

Round table cloths are another favorite. They gracefully fall to the floor like an elegant evening gown.

I created this little resersible round topper years ago and still use it for many purposes:

On the Patio, a little side table:  002waverlyroundtable00IMG_0656

A corner of a sitting room: 01tropicalroundtableM

I could go on and on.   Each round cloth has a different design and feel.  With the contrast banding,  lavish trims,  bold welt piping, these round cloths can be statement pieces.  If purchased retail, they can be pricey.  But easy to sew, easy to create with a little time.

This tropical Waverly print has a contrast band; double piping; and its reversible.

I have made  many over the years so I decided to do a tutorial on how to add a contrast band. Click each page for a full view. 5 pages for printing.

  1. Oops. Accidently bumped the post button before I could finish…. What I wanted to write was that you have a great tutorial here. I’m saving it for when I get the chance to sew again (my craft room is in “slight” disarray at the moment 😉

  2. Great! Most welcome. Thanks. I know, I love round tables and round table clothes that are embellished too. I’m working on a Paris theme featuring a round table and embroidered cloth.. more later than sooner done. But I’m going to try and do more tutorials…I just forget while I’m in that mental zone of sewing. :-). Glad you can use this one. Thanks again.

  3. Linda, I’m saving this post and the tutorial. Thank you for putting the round tablecloth tutorial on-line. This is really wonderful to have because round table are my favorite. The pale blue room with the cathedral spire is is a dream room, isn’t it? I always think of English rooms with round tables piled with books so I liked that picture a lot. It seems like it would be so cozy with the light on at night. And the one with the bohemian skirt – now that is fabulous. Loved this post.

  4. Thanks Amina. I love them. And Yes you could have! Are you kidding me! Your house and Kim’s house is gorgeous! Just so happened this round table cloth they are on, I made a while back. It’s been in every room of the house. I’ll get a glass top for the table, which will give a little reflection to the statues….Or, a mirrored tray! 🙂 Thanks again

  5. Linda, I echo Kim’s comments..it put together so artistically! All the colors blend so well..I wiki have neve been able to pull that off…great look!!
