Table Runners

(Topic: Sewing)

Hi Friends!

This has actually been (and still is) an ongoing project: a friend has a sideboard top that she needs table runners for, but because it has a ledge, the table runners need to fit within the edges.

She also wants them for nearly every holiday and season ­čÖé

So I have the dimensions she needs, and create a rectangle with wide hems that will fit.

Some of them I do with a full length piece of fabric, but that means that I’m not using nearly all the width, so it is more efficient (and affordable) to make the runners with a center seam halfway along the length, which means I can use half the length and just use two pieces of the width.
After that is just a matter of making sure that the corners are properly square and the dimensions match!
