All you need for this tutorial is at least 6-7 yards of fabric, staple gun, and scissors. I found my outdoor fabric on clearance at Hancocks fabric for $6 a yard, major score. Outdoor fabric proved to be easier to work with since its more heavyweight and creates nice seams. 

 In this step you will use two separate pieces of fabric to form a crease on both side and in the center. I really love the way the pleats make it look more professional.
 When I got to this step, I ran out of fabric because of the way the pattern was facing, so I have two pieces on the top of my table.
