I use a cheap £4.99 fleece backed table cloth when I sew on the dining room table.  The table has its own protector but is a bit heavy to drag out every time.

The warm weather has meant I'm sewing downstairs when I can, but at the weekend I need the cheapo cover on the table to clean the birdies out and had to shunt the machine onto the floor.

So, looking for a cheap table cloth protector, although I didn't want one with the patterned surface just plain, that was more expensive but heavy duty £10.99.  Then I saw this:

It's more expensive but I like those bits added on.  Has any one else got one?

@Gernella I came across your post the other day and used the link to the table top cover, but the supplier seems not to sell to the UK  :'(

Should you come across anything similar within the UK, could you let me know?

Many thanks.

They did at the time and quoted postage at around £27, so ditched the idea and bought a meter of table protector, which works just as well but not quite as fancy.  I think what I really want is one of those aprons with a catch tray attached, I might spend less time losing snips and scissors.
