Pineapple Tablecloth

 
We can't talk Pineapples without Carmen Miranda!
 
I often need a little a tropical flair to my day, especially in the dead of winter and I fell in love with this fabric at Neff's Country Loft.I didn't know what I was going make out of it so when all else fails....
 
 
A Tablecloth! I had a great time using a fancy stitch to simply hem this wonderful material. While I eat or craft or whatever I can stare at the beautiful fabric and envision something greater. All I did to the fabric was hem it, if I think of anything better to make, I can simply snatch the material off the table and start sewing!
 
The ivory and yellow shades really compliment my cherry dining chairs, I suspect this will remain a table cloth for a long time.

  1. Isn't that pretty fabric! And I think pineapples are a kind of universal symbol for friendship, right? (okay, maybe not quite universal, but common). :-)

    1. I love the exact shades of teh yellows and green in the fabric and unfortunately you can't feel the nice quality of it! I believe you were right about the term universal, I have heard that about pineapples. And of course they are great to eat, I wonder if this will have me buying more pineapples now...

  2. Love that Carmen video!
    Tableclothes are so simple to make, but add such an elegant touch.

    1. I really liked the video too and how it showed clips of all of Carmen's great hats and styles. I think tablecloths are elegant but also homey and comforting too, and can pull together a whole mood or theme.
