More specifically, an end of the table for my daughter to use her enormous nail polish collection. Or paint. So I sewed a ratty old towel to the end of the table.
We recently bought a new dining room set for dining, so the old table went to the basement for the kids’ crafts. And my sewing machine from time to time.I was going to use these sheet-holder-in-placers-over-the-corner-of-the-mattress thingies, but the towel was too thick so I had to sew it in place instead.
I used knitting yarn and tied a nice bow around the two front table legs, then a less nice bow through the back of the towel and the posts for the leaf insert.
