I have been shopping around for table runners and table squares. The ones I found were not cheap, but they looked like something I could make myself. Turns out they are, so I just made one for a friend. Here’s how you can make one too!
CUT YOUR FABRIC
- 1 – 36″ x 24″ main fabric
- 1 – 36″ x 36″ main or accent fabric for the back
- 2 – 36″ x 7″ accent fabric
- 2 – 1 yd. accent trim
- 4 yards of fancy trim
SEW ACCENT AND MAIN FABRICS TOGETHER
Place you main fabric and accent fabric pieces right sides together. Sew in place with a 1/2″ seam. Iron the seams.
ATTACH ACCENT TRIM
I top stitched the accent trim, covering the seam that holds the main fabrics together. I used clear thread. A matching thread will work.
PUT IT ALL TOGETHER
Face both 36″ pieces of fabric right sides together. Stitch with a 1/2″ seam, leaving enough room to turn it right side out. Turn it right side out and iron. Top stitch your fancy trim all along the edge, closing the hole.
