DIY Table Runners

sewing materials

I like a sewing project that I can do in under an hour.  It’s kind of my gauge for what projects I want to do or not.  I also like to batch projects.  For example, I have this great wrap dress I’ve designed that I can knock out in about 45 minutes.  I like to make three at a time.  I’ll cut them all out and sew them up in assembly line fashion.  Recently I did this for some table runners.

Table runners are a great ‘Molly’ project.  They are as simple as can be or as fancy as you have time for.

Get some fabric out…

Cut it out:

  • For the length I suggest the length of your table + 11″ (5″ finished overhang on each side).
  • For the width I suggest 15″ (this will give you a 14″ finished width).

I sewed different fabric panels together and added ribbon on the seams to spice them up.

Turn and sew up the edges…

Add a tassel for some real flair…
