Want to Know What to Do With This Less Than $5.00 Twin Fitted Sheet?

by Ijensen
2 Materials

Grab a cheap twin fitted sheet and use it for a table cloth on your picnic table. No more table cloth flipping up in the wind!

They come in a cute little pouch. When you are done, just wash them for use at your next picnic. I have 2 tables, so purchased 4 that can be washed together. I just roll them back up and put back in the fabric pouch.

They are a little loose on the sides, so if it bugs you I bought little clips at the $$ store (3/$1.00), drilled a little hole on the one side and put a headband elastic between the 2 clips.

It fits like a glove.

Let the wind blow and your table cloth strays in place. No more flipped over plates, cups, plastic forks or bags.

    Are you just using the fitted sheet? Do you think the extra long twin would fit the 8' table?

    Would this work on a round picnic table?

    Why not just use sheet garters to hold it on? No drilling, no holes on anything?
