Yellow and Blue Frugal Tablecloth

I saw these curtains in my favorite store, Christmas Tree Shop.  They were in the clearance bin. 

table 3562

I liked the colors and it was a nice cotton and decided to get them to make a tablecloth.

table 3566

I still have to finish it up, but you can get an idea….

table 3568

I got 4 napkins from the valance…

table 35694.50 for the cloth and napkins.  I think I will get white ribbon like what is on them to cover the seams.

Or just put a lot on the table so that no one notices! :)

I can use it on my kitchen island when I serve buffet style from there.

I’ll use it in a tablescape after Easter…

I am joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch  for Metamorphosis Monday.

Thanks for stopping by..See you for Tabletop Tues..


  1. You are amazing! (and I was thinking of your comment the other day - was she maybe Queen of the May (May Day) or at the Scottish Festival they still do every year?)

  2. Oh I love the fabric and what a great tablecloth and napkins. I just love it. So pretty. I think you did good. Hugs, Marty

  3. TOTALLY my kind of makeover Kathleen! Love the tablecloth and napkins and the price is pretty snazzy too :)


  4. Wow! What a bargain! Love the colors, patterns, etc. You have a very creative mind, great ideas! Can't wait to see the tablescape done with it!


  5. Oh Kathleen, you and a sewing machine are a dangerous pair. It's amazing what you come up with!

  6. Kathleen, you are so clever. I wish I could think out of the box when I see something like this. Love the fabric combinations, and you used them perfectly. I like the idea of using the ribbon down the seam, though it really looks fine just as it is. Great job!

  7. Fantastic ~! those are my new favorite colors. Love how you put those styles together.. so pretty


  8. Great idea, Kathleen, and so pretty!...Christine

  9. Love that print and the colors are so pretty. I think it looks great as a tablecloth! Great job and a wonderful find!


  10. Why aren't we a tad creative ??
    Looks great and so frugal too !
    Hugs ~ Kammy

  11. Isn't the Christmas tree shop great?
    & I really like your tablecloth - so pretty!

  12. Wow, you are very clever and creative, Kathleen! but I knew that! Very pretty! The valance? Something you just saw in the window? Like Carol Burnett in "Went with the Wind"?


  13. Now that's a bargain! Blue and yellow is one of my favorite color combinations. You are so creative, Kathleen.

  14. I love blue and yellow..Great job.Love that store:)

  15. What a deal Kathleen! Love that fabric, of course I love all the things you pick out! Great thinking outside the box! How's you weather? We're supposed to get up in the 70's by mid-week which is utterly amazing for Wisconsin in March. I can't wait to get outside and dig in the dirt!
    Have a great week,

  16. I wonder if CTS will ever make it to the Midwest?! What a bargain and it makes a beautiful tablecloth I love the napkins with the striped border!

  17. You are so creative! I never would have thought of doing that. Very pretty and a great buy!

  18. Kathleen, you are the queen of frugal AND creativity. Beautiful colors and totally useful. I'm so impressed.

  19. You are just so clever, Kathleen. I think you may have more than a few dishes that would look wonderful sitting on your cute, new table cloth...the napkins are cute. You sure can't beat that price for a tablecloth and matching napkins.

  20. The Bargain Queen is at it again - I love the floral on the tablecloth aka curtains! Can;t wait to see it all decked out! I like the idea of using it on your island..would really dress up a buffet.

  21. I love yellow and blue together...a winning combination. I enjoy seeing what you can do with a sewing machine!

  22. Nice work! Very creative.

    Hope you'll drop by AtticMag to give JaneT some advice on making a bench from a vintage bed. #81 on Met Monday.


  23. Too cute! Like the idea of a cookie cutter napkin ring! Clever. Have a wonderful Easter week.

  24. Love those colors! You are just so talented. how smart of you to make that into a tablecloth and napkins! laurie

  25. I've always like the blue and yellow color combination. I really like the floral and stripe. Your tablecloth looks the napkins too!
