Today we are making 10 minute table runners. No, I'm serious! They really take 10 minutes to make. If I can do it in 10 minutes, YOU can do it too! Here is what you will need....
|1/2 yard of one cut of fabric and 1/3 yard of another cut of fabric. Coordinating thread and either buttons, or ribbons in coordinating colors.|
|Sew the two fabric pieces, right sides together, to create a long tube.|
|Here is your tube. Once you've done that, turn it right side out.|
|Here it is turned right side out. Then center your tube, so that equal parts of the coordinating fabric is showing on either side, and then iron flat.|
|Fold your tube in half with the two fabrics showing on the outside.|
|Sew along the edge leaving about 1/4 to 1/2 seam allowance.|
|Then stick your hand in the corner of that seam and pull the corner out. This will create a triangle end piece.|
|Here is is, once the corner has been pulled.|
|Sew buttons, or ribbons on where the corner meets the edge and.....|
|VOILA!!! You've created a darling table runner for not much money at all!!! I sewed buttons on one and ribbon on the other.|
|Here is is gracing my table and making it look oh-so-festive.|
