I was in our local thrift store this morning and found 3 brand new, still in the package sheets.... Only thing is they are fitted, not flat. How do I make tablecloths out of them? Please say it is possible?!?!?!?

Re: fitted sheet=tablecloth
I would say it is still possible, but will require more sewing than if you had flat sheets. You'll have to cut the elastic sides off. I made mine with flat sheets and was able to use the hemmed edge of the sheets for the bottom edge of my tablecloth, so I didn't have to sew any hems.
You may be able to get away with 3 pieces total, which is what I did- one for the top, and two for the sides. Depending on how big they are, you may be able to use two long pieces to wrap around two sides of the table. Does that make sense? Like use one piece to start on a small side of the table and wrap around the long side. And then another piece for the other small and long side?
This probably made no sense. I could not be a technical writer. LOL.
