Make A Table Topper Square

It's so easy to make a table topper
 with just a square of fabric.
I've made a few of these for the
seasons and holidays.  
 I buy fabric (length equal to width) for just a few
 dollars using a 50% off coupon.
Just iron a hem all around and
 either sew it, or use fabric glue or bonding tape. 
I have quite a collection now.
 Many of these are 36" squares from Longaberger.
Some of the others have been passed on to me.
I store them in the pie safe HERE.
I'm using my daisy filled picket fence tote
from my previous post as the centerpiece.
The daisy pattern is all about summertime.
The napkins are just tucked into the mug handles.
Ice tea is served in a Mason jar.
I brought in this little daisy frame 
from another room.
This would make a cute menu card.
These are just small potted dahlberg daisies.
 More daisy art on a nearby wall.
with strawberries
with tea and apples
It's in  a neat stack I can easily store 
on a shelf in the garage.
How handy is that!


  1. Thanks for the idea! I bet even I could do this:):) XO, Pinky

  6. Hi Rita! Oh, I love those little table squares. I have so much fabric and now I'm going to look through them and do just what you've done! I love your daisy table and that little caddy - too cute!
    Be a sweetie,

  7. Rita, I love table toppers and I don't know why I don't make more..probably because I hate to sew. I like your idea of using iron on hem tape or glue. Your tablesape is so fresh and cute with the daisy theme.I like the way you put the napkin in the mug handle. Cute.
    Thanks for the ideas.

  8. Adorable table setting, love the daisies! Visting via A Stroll Thru Life.
