This project, which is guaranteed to add a colorful touch to your summer gatherings, takes about an hour to complete. The finished tablecloth will cover a picnic table, or a large kitchen or dining room table, with plenty of overhang on all sides. Using a sewing machine makes things go quicker, but if you don’t have a sewing machine, or you simply prefer to sew by hand, that works too. You’ll want to allow a little more time if you’re sewing by hand, though.

Supplies:

• Iron
• 12 bandanas
• Stick pins
• Sewing machine or needle and thread



Instructions:

1. Iron all of your bandanas, and then lay them out on the floor. Arrange them in the pattern in which you want to sew them.
