There’s no shortage of options for making your own china, but many of them require a bit of a bit-by-bit approach.
In this article, we’ll break down the steps needed to make your own Chinese china from scratch.1.
Pick a material for your china.
A basic tablecloth will do for most basic Chinese chin.
It can be bought from a variety of sources, such as Chinese craftsmen and home furnishings stores.
A few simple, inexpensive items are:A piece of fabric with the same width as the tablecloth.
This will allow you to fold it in half and then fold it into the table, creating a more natural-looking fabric.
A piece that will fit between the table and the fabric, without being too tight.
This one is also a nice option.
It won’t be too big, but will allow the table to stretch without having to cut it out of the fabric.2.
Fold the fabric in half.
The easiest way to do this is to use a straight-edge to fold the piece in half on the table.
A tape measure or ruler can also help you do this.
This way, you don’t have to cut out any of the sides, so you can fold it up and use it as a template for the rest of the china fabric.3.
Fold it up again.
This time, you can make the piece taller by folding it in a bit, and making the edges thicker by folding them in a notch.
You can also add a little more fabric to the edge of the folded section to create a “cushion” to protect the fabric from the sun.
A sheet of parchment paper or cotton-felt paper.
This is optional, but makes it easier to make the chins longer, since you don’ need to cut the fabric out of it.
A small box cutter will do the job.4.
Using the tape measure, cut out the chinstrap.
Fold your piece into the fabric and use a ruler to mark the length of the length.
The tape measure is a handy tool, so it’s usually a good idea to carry a handy-dandy ruler to keep track of your measurements.5.
Fold in a few folds and the whole thing should look like this:The fabric should stretch, and you should be able to hold it up without any effort.6.
Now it’s time to fold in the sides.
You’ll need to do the same thing with the back, and the sides should look something like this once the fabric is folded in:7.
Cut the fabric to your desired length.
You might need to trim the excess fabric away a little to make room for the sides (which can make it a bit longer).8.
Fold that piece of china into the rest, and use the tape measures to mark your desired thickness:Cutting out the edges with the ruler will help ensure that the chinks are properly shaped, and make it easier for you to cut them out.9.
Using a straight edge, fold the fabric down to the desired length, and then you’ll need some sort of template.
Fold out the excess and place the folded piece in the template.
Cut out the side pieces.
Fold them in to the pattern as you normally would, making sure to align the corners so the fabric doesn’t unravel.10.
Use the template to mark out your desired size.
Use your ruler and a ruler or ruler-tape measure to cut your desired width, or cut a pattern that will cover up the excess.
You should have something that will match your table.
Make sure to use the same template for both sides and the back.
Fold and tape measure to make sure that you get the exact width of the piece you want to make, then mark your side pieces on the template and fold over them with the straight edge to get a straight piece.
Fold over the front pieces and cut them the same way.
Make your chin a bit larger by folding the fabric up and folding in the excess to create an extra pocket.
You may want to trim some excess fabric out, so that the back pieces look more like the front.
The finished piece should look pretty close to the one you just made.
The chin is now ready for use.
You’re not done yet, though, since there are still some things to make it look nicer.
You still need to make a few small changes to the fabric that will make it more “natural” looking.1) Add some extra fabric.
Add a couple of inches to the back and front edges of the back piece.
You want the pieces to sit flat on the countertop, so cut them off at a 45-degree angle.2) Make sure the chin fabric is lined up perfectly.
Make sure that the fabric fits flush with the edge on the back of the table (as well as the side and back pieces), but not overlapping the fabric on either side.
This will prevent the fabric coming down
