We will sew and embroiderer a table cloth, a napkin, a silverware holder (in the hoop) and a glass marker.
We have to cut the fabric by mesuring the table according this formula: *lenght of the table + exceeding at both ends + widht of the hem at both ends Example: 60″ + 12″ x 2 + 2″ x 2 = 88″ lenght of the tablecloth *width of the table + exceeding at both ends + widht of the hem at both ends Example: 32″ + 12″ x 2 + 2″ x 2 = 60″ width of the tablecloth
Sewing the tablecloth
- iron the hem at 2″ each of the 4 sides
- make the 4 mitered corners
- with the help of the cloth guide of your machine, sew an even row of the honeycomb stitch with a wing needle all the way around the fabric at 2″
Did you know that there is two sizes of wing needle? #100/16 & # 120/19.The brand is Schmetz and here is the link of their website: http://www.schmetzneedles.com/ But wait… there is more… a free app !!! This app gives you so much information about their full collection of needle.
The honeycomb stitch in combination with the wing needle a nice decorative stitch with holes. You can use any stitch that comes back many time at the same place to produce the hole. This stitch could be 5mm or 7mm or 9mm depending of the model of your machine.
The work looks more elegant if the corners are mitered, this means sewn at an angle of 45°. The weight of the fabric in the corners will hold nicely in place. On the wrong side of the fabric, this stitch will overcast the raw edge of the fabric; we now have two use for the same stitch.
Then, when the tablecloth is all finish to sew, you can add embroidery design. It is suitable to first embroider the four corners; then, add a design in the center of each length by using a different design form the same collection.
