Custom Ordered Tablecloth

I am not a sports fan, but living in the state of Oregon, there are just gobs of Oregon Ducks fans.  Especially now that they have made it to the first ever championship game.  It is kinda like a "Super Bowl" for college teams, and this is the first time college football is having such a championship game.  So it is no surprise that the fans here are a little excited.  No, they are crazy excited.  Again, not my thing, but it does bring in the customers for specialized "Duck" items.

This customer wanted a tablecloth for a rather large banquet table made with "Duck" fabric.  All the tablecloths we could find were the vinyl ones, and they were not big enough.  She wanted it done only if they won the Rose Bowl (which they did) for the Championship Game on January 12th.  The last couple of days, I have worked on getting this done for her.

The measurements are 66" X 84" that includes a 14" overhang.  See what I mean about a big table?

I did a flange/mitered corner border all around the table cloth to give it some weight and character, rather than just plain old printed fabric.

This is the same customer that I made this potholder set for awhile back, and fortunately I had enough of both fabrics to make the tablecloth to match.

Now onto the next custom order.
