I found a few photos of table runners I've made in the last year. Sorry they are all sideways but you definitely get the idea what they look like! lol This first one was made as a birthday gift for one of my favorite coworkers. She loved it as well as all the other ladies at work, oops! Maybe I should have thought of that before giving it to her at work in case all of them are expecting something similar for their birthdays! The striped bit is actually a flap, sort of a quirky design idea I came up with after visiting Anna's Linens and looking at curtains, lol
This next one is the first runner I ever made! Boy did I make mistakes on it
but still beautiful. The trim is some stuff I bought from a former coworker
who has a flea market booth. She's in her 70's and in the 1970's she was a designer
for some company in Chicago that made trims.
Now she's had a very interesting life!
This runner has a lovely vintage trim on it, again, purchased from Miss June.
All the fabrics with the exception of the black fruit looking material (Hob Lob clearance rack 2007) came from one of my favorite designers, Robert Allen.
Table runners are a great way to use scrappy left over bits of fabric from home decorating projects. Whatever long narrow piece I have, I just tack on something to the ends and cover up the seam with some trim! Make a lining and you're done. They make awesome gifts too.
