Step 1: Hold up tablecloth Hold up the tablecloth in front of you with its top side facing you. Step 2: Fold into semicircle Work your hands down to the center on either side, allowing the tablecloth to fold away from you in half along its diameter, with its top half facing out. You should be holding a semicircle before you. Tip This vertical center fold is the only fold that can be crisp -- in general, tablecloths should be folded loosely to avoid deep creases when unfolded. Step 3: Place on flat surface Place the semicircle on the clean, flat surface with the flat edge at the top and the rounded edge closest to you. Step 4: Fold rounded edge to flat edge Take the bottommost point on the rounded edge and fold it up to the midpoint of the flat edge. You should have a trapezoidal shape with slightly rounded sides in front of you. Step 5: Fold in half Fold the trapezoid in half, bringing one rounded side over to meet the other. Tip If you like to store your tablecloths on hangers, stop here and hang it from this middle fold. Step 6: Fold rounded edges to center If you stack your tablecloths for storage, fold both rounded edges back to the center, creating a square shape with rounded edges on top. Step 7: Fold in half again If you need it even smaller, fold the square shape in half one more time. Did You Know? There are names for the different folds used in origami, including the valley fold, the rabbit-ear fold, the petal fold, the squash fold, and the reverse fold.
