Halloween Tablecloth

Last year after Halloween I bought the kit for this table cloth at Broadbent's. I put it together really quickly the other day and added ric rac and some little pom pom
things on the edges. I added a back so the seams wouldn't be showing, but now I'm wondering if I should us my walking foot to secure it to the back. Thoughts?
Caleb looks upset, but he's really thrilled with his new pjs. I have had this fabric and some of the sock monkey fabric for at least a year and have been meaning to make them into pj bottoms. I finally got around to it this weekend. Now I need to find a pattern small enough for Jake to make him some. Also good news.... I found my frog patterns. Now I am only missing two patterns that I know of.

Darling tablecloth, Elizabeth! And, really, really cute PJ's! The only thing that I can think of for the tablecloth as a reason to stitch it to the back, is if you are sliding plates across, or anything like that, the plates might want to take the top with them...it would just be more secure...I don't know if I explained that very well. I'm so excited for Saturday...see you then!! =)

Wow that turned out sooo cute and the rick rack makes it totally pop! Where did you get rick rack that huge in Orange? Broadbents? Love it. I could go either way on the topstitching, I'd probably do it I guess. If you have time it might make it look more finished but it is super cute.
