This summer I’ve been loving the look of my dining room table with a pretty runner and centerpiece of flowers or green plants. Recently I decided to make a new runner from fabric I had on hand. This is a SUPER EASY sewing project, so even a total novice can handle it!
Last spring, while shopping at the Hancock Fabrics store in Asheville, I fell in love with a navy and white arrow printed fabric. I thought I might use it to make a throw pillow cover for the guest room so I decided to pick up a yard of the fabric. Hancock had just announced that it was going out of business, and had a instituted a minimum purchase requirement of two yards, so I bought two yards instead. I am so glad that I did because a one-yard piece would have been too short for this project. And after making my runner, I still had plenty of fabric left to make two small pillow covers. I used a coordinating fabric that I’ve had in my stash for a while to make this runner reversible. The print on the back side is a navy field with tiny white stars. The finished table runner is 13 inches by 72 inches.
That’s all there is to it. Super simple. Now you’re ready to use your new table runner.
