    Hi I an looking for small table cloths to throw over the table. When I couldn't get any the right size (regular Hymer) I thought I'd get material and cut to size but it's all shipped from Hong Kong and I can't wait around. Any ideas? Don't tell me not to bother as it brightens up the place and we are messy slobs haha

    Try local fabric shops or stalls on markets. If nothing else you should be able to get hold of a cheap off-cut to use as a temporary measure.

    Shops like The Range sell it on a roll, cut to the length you need

    I recently bought off the roll at the range. I wanted it for the outside table, the wipe able plastic stuff. Great choice and got a lovely design. Good value too. Dunelm mill have a good selection too.

    Get mine for the MH at Dunelm as you can buy it from a roll so any length. We use it on picnic tables when we stop in France for lunch on an aire as well as our outdoor table.
    ( family laugh as I have one for breakfast and a different one for lunch and tea!!)

    I think they make a nice focal point in the van amidst all the beige.

    Dunelm ( my favourite shop) sell different grades of oilcloth. Start at £2.99 metre approx 150 cms wide. I covered the entire back seat of my car for £6.
    The heavier qualities at £9.99 will stay in place better. None of them fray if you just cut them.
    If you want mega posh any Cath Kidston shop sells oilcloth at about £20 a metre--- nice designs.
    I'm just sewing a mixture of oilcloth remnants into tissue holders, wet wipe covers, mini purses and storage baskets. All going to be sold at a local car boot sale for http://www.scottyslittlesoldiers.co.uk
