Repurposing Tablecloths

I love tablecloths!  And I love making things from tablecloths.  This past week I found a pattern for a Runaround Bag by Lazy Girl Designs and made a few for some friends I was visiting in California.

This amazing pattern only took about an hour to put together.

Here are the bags in process:

Selecting the tablecloth, coordinating fabric and zipper:

And my friends with their new bags:


  1. Excellent work, Rebecca! I love the group shot, too!

  2. Rebecca-I am always amazed at how talented you are- My goal now that I am retired is to learn to sew. Always wanted to learn, but my grandmother never would teach us, she would just saw, "I'll do it honey". I think I will find a place to learn. Those bags are just perfect for craft or antique fairs. You can zip them up and carry them in front of you. I am very impressesd; Denise

  3. Denise - I am NO seamstress! This pattern was so easy my cat could do it! Try it out girl!
