Uses for old flannel back table cloths

Flannel backed table cloths can be convenient because you don't have to wash and iron them, but they look nicer than a bare table. When one starts to wear, salvage the good parts for place mats. Cut mats to size and put a "hem" of colored tape around them. Make water proof bibs from it the same way, or make a water proof apron for yourself or a child by cutting a long rectangle, then cutting a piece from the center for your head. Hem it with colored tape or zigzag stitch on your sewing machine and add ties for the sides.
