Threaded View

i am not a great sewer/ i have some beautiful fabric that i would like to
cut a hole and close the tablecloth as well/  instead of an umbrella, i
have a fan pole in the center of the table and cannot lift it out to put
the tablecloth on/
is there a way to put a zipper like something or other in w/o sewing in a
zipper/  i am intimidated by zippers!
thanks so much

Use Velcro?  But a separating zipper would really work
better:

Zippers are not hard, practice makes perfect.  If you don't
want to sew it in by machine, you could always stitch a
zipper in by hand.

Right up my alley, I'm making a tablecloth for an umbrella table. Other
options are using velcro as a closure or buttons and buttonholes or
button holes on each side of the opening and lacing them together like a
shoe. I also suggest that you do your opening along the width rather
than the length of the table. Less distance that way.

Do you actually need a closure?  Tables don't jump around much; just
cut the slit and let the edges lie side by side.  If the wind picks
up, put the salt shaker where it will hold the edges down.
