My best friend is getting married this winter, and has chosen black and white damask for her decor. Although she's not quite the penny-pincher I am, she also loves a good sale and enjoys good deals. When she saw these table rounds on etsy (maybe not this exact one, but similar) she fell in love. And when I told her we could easily make these for a fraction of the cost, it didn't take her too long to agree to the project.
I've had 7 yards (if I remember correctly) of black and white damask sitting in my sewing room for the last two months, just waiting until I had the time to tackle the project. With the three day weekend coming up, I intend to finally get started on this. I'll post a tutorial when I'm done.
