I’m still using that rummage sale fabric I got for a quarter. I can’t believe how far it’s gone. I used it to make some pillows and cocktail napkins, and for the final piece I decided to make a table runner.
Since it’s St. Patty’s Day, I thought it might be fun to make a table runner to go over this cute table cloth that one of my friends gave me last year. I had some blue and green toile material and also some green checked stuff, so I used that for one side of the runner, and used up the extra piece of rummage sale fabric for the other. I even found a couple little tassels for $1. How great is that?
These are very forgiving to make. You don’t need a pattern, and you can use up leftover pieces of material. Just put right sides together and leave the short end open so you can turn it inside out. For the length, measure your table and determine how much you want to hang over the edge. To whatever number you come up with, add two inches to the total for sewing.
