The Family Tablecloth

Elizabeth started asking around Christmas if I would teach her to sew. I couldn't really think of what to teach her so I held off until this project came to me. I thought it could be fun to have a family tablecloth. Anyone in the family can work on it, and when it's complete, we'll place it on the table to remind us of how much we enjoyed working on it together (and how much we enjoy eating together). We visited the Goodwill and picked out a plain white tablecloth; well, it does have some textured print to the fabric, but it's the Goodwill, you can't be too picky. Elizabeth is working on embroidering her name to it. Eventually, we'll have everyone's names on there, and we'll dye it to give it a bit more character. Hopefully, I'll have more to post as we continue this project, but for now, here's the beginning...
