As the owner of a brand new house, you are sure to have already looked into insuring your property and possessions. Whether you are thinking about visiting http://www.rac.co.uk/home-insurance/ or signing up with Direct Line, be sure to look around and do your research in order to get the best deal. There is no better feeling than being safe in the knowledge that everything from your oven to your tablecloth will be covered under your insurance. Here’s how you can add a touch of glamour to your dining room by making your own tablecloth.
Silk or satin fabric
1. Begin by buying a few metres of lovely silk or satin material. Then measure your dining table and use the measurements to outline the shape onto your material using a fabric marker pen.
2. Add one inch to your measurements then carefully cut the shape out. Fold the extra inch of material over and iron it down to make a crease.
3. Sew the fold down using thread which matches the tablecloth. Then turn it over and iron out any other creases.
4. Add some glamour to your tablecloth by sewing on some sequins or some velvet thread along the hemline. You could even find an iron-on pattern for the centre of the tablecloth or even design your own.
