Yesterday I took a trip to Fabric Place (www.fabricplace.com) in Woburn to revisit my table cloth options. Three hours later, I left without fabric and with a lot of ideas. Here's a pictorial of my new ideas:
This is the first fabric I came across that sparked my interest. It's a knit that reminds me of a table cloth my mom always has on her table. I like the material and the color but the price was over my budget and I'm not sure if it will be easy to hem. I think it might be possible to run a stitch and then fray the ends.
These gingham's didn't catch my eye at first but then I started thinking about country BBQ and decided a gingham might be just the thing to add some country charm. These were the best priced of all the fabrics. It's difficult to see in the photo but the colors are a lemon yellow and a magenta red. I'm looking more for a gold and apple red.
I really like all three of these fabrics and I think they would work well together. The browns are a nice chocolate color and I like the style of the sun flowers. Very cuties country but I think it would work well.
I really love this material. The pattern is beautiful and the colors are nice. It lacks the reds, oranges, and golds that I'm looking for so it's out of the running but it was just to pretty not to post.
I've saved my favorite choice for last:
I found these fabrics in the quilting section. I love the shabby chic feel and they way all three fabrics work together. The colors are perfect but unfortunately, the price wasn't.
Fabric place was a great place to find inspiration but I left feeling that maybe my table cloth idea is more expensive then I thought. I'm going to have to really think this though before I buy anything.
