Give your favourite vintage fabrics a home in one of Corinne Bradd’s homely table accessories, and you’ll enjoy seeing them every time you settle down with a cuppa. We’re loving these 1930s-inspired floral prints, but any cotton fabric will do. Simply make up the lightly padded fabric middles first before crocheting around the edge. The rounds won’t take long and then you can kick back with a selection of biscuits!

Make a fabric centre

    1. Cut an 11cm circle from patterned and plain fabrics. Pin right side tog onto wadding. Sew through all three layers, 5mm from the edge and leave a 4cm gap for turning. Trim the wadding close to the seam line, turn right side out and press.

    2. Fold in the raw edges of the gap. Using a sharp needle and double thickness of matching thread, sew a neat blanket stitch evenly around the edge of the disc. Keep the stitches about 4mm apart and aim for an even number of around 70 stitches in total.

Crochet the border

    Using 3mm hook, join beige yarn to blanket st.

    Rnd 1: 1ch (does not count as st throughout), 1dc loosely in top of each blanket st, sl st in first dc to join rnd. Change to yellow yarn (green, pink), joining with 1dc in any st
