From a veteran craft show-er, the way you present your product in person can make or break a show. I'm constantly trying to improve my booth presence and this year I'm extra gung-ho. For my entire show life, I've been throwing up sheets, blankets, tablecloths and scarves over my tables and called it done. Don't get me wrong, they've looked nice and cohesive for the most part but for the last year or so, I've been wanting to make my own table covers specifically for craft shows. And I finally did.
One of the fabrics that I grabbed in the warehouse really sung to me and after cleaning it up, I decided it would be perfect for show table covers! I made two, both for 4' tables and I think they just may be the best thing ever. Allow me to introduce you and guide you through making your own!
Super simple. First, make sure you have tons of a fabric that won't draw away from your product or displays. I used one of the fabrics from the haul that I felt would be perfect for the project. Doesn't wrinkle, washes easily, eye-catching, composed of neutrals, complimented my work, and readily available! Measure the top of the table and each of the sides to the floor. Cut one piece of fabric for each side and the top, approximately 1" larger than the measurements.
Leave that back panel free so you can easily access the space under your table during the show. If you've ever done a show before, you know how sacred that under table space can be! It was important to me to be able to quickly and easily get to packaging material, extra stock, snacks, or whatever else it may be so I left the back corners open. To keep things looking nice though, finish up those edges however you see fit.
