Once a year our church does a huge craft/project day called "Super Saturday". All the women get together and spend the day rotating around stations set up for different projects. These table runners were one of the stations at this year's Super Saturday. My friend taught me how to make them, and she learned how to make them from her mom who learned how from a craft segment on a TV show.
My friend who was teaching had TONS of table runners she had made using this pattern. She had one for every holiday and we talked about how these would make cute christmas/birthday/housewarming gifts. Table runners are such a fun way to add a pop of color to your home and buying them at the store can get expensive. I'm so excited to make more for everyday use that I can rotate throughout the year.
- 1/2 yard of fabric that will be your bottom and top trim
- 1/3 yard of fabric that will be the top pattern
- 2 buttons
After your fabric is trimmed, iron the creases.
Next, with the right sides of the fabric together, pin the left edges of your fabric together--along the length.
Now pull the top piece over and pin the right side along the length. Sew that edge.
Once that's sewed it will look something like this:
Enjoy your new table runner!
