I have a confession to make. I DESPISE the feel of the flannel backing on vinyl tablecloths. Vinyl tablecloths come in a wide array of delightful colors and patterns and they tend to be very inexpensive, but I’ve always turned up my nose because of that flannel backing. I’m so excited to share these projects with you today! These genius ways to use vinyl tablecloths changed my mind and have me thinking I need to start buying up every one I see. Enjoy!
