    Determine the diameter of the table

    First of all, you need to determine the diameter of the table on which the tablecloth has to be placed. Measure the diameter of the table with the help of a tape measure and also note down the length of the table from the floor. This will help you when you want to determine the fabric you need.

    Determine the fabric required

    The fabric totally depends on the type of tablecloth you need. You need to measure the length to which you want the fabric to fall. Some tablecloths fall just below the table top whereas some touch the floor. Whatever the length is, buy double the length of fabric.

    Cut and sew the fabric

    It is important to make a square shape and cut the fabric accordingly. The square’s width should be equal to the diameter of the table. Use the side that is longer in the centre and attach borders or strips to the other side if it falls short. Make sure you iron the fabric before doing this.
