Folk Design Tablecloth
This is the last of the three tablecloth and hand towel designs I printed at Spoonflower this month. When the package arrived in the mail I originally thought the background color was too green-gold, but it has now grown on me. I had been shooting for a nice tan-yellow gold but I think this color adds a layer of funkiness - so for now I am keeping it this color. The tablecloth is designed to fit a 33-34'' square card table. Again, because you have to buy by the yard at Spoonflower, I was able to fit in two matching hand towels for a total of two yards.
If you would like to purchase this tablecloth go to Spoonflower.com and search for "Sorensen" (or click here.) Then choose "Folk Tablecloth," cotton twill, and 2 yards. Spoonflower will mail the fabric to you and then you will have to cut the fabric, hem the edges, and add a trim if you'd like. (Please see my previous post about washing instructions!)
I really lucked out because my poppies were blooming the day I photographed this tablecloth. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect orange flower that day. But I had to shoot really quickly because this kind of poppy doesn't last more than about half an hour after it's cut. Luckily it held out just long enough!
