Learn how to sew a simple table runner with cotton fabric and trim. Make one for everyday or for holiday decorating, and give it as a handmade gift.

Supplies:

– cotton fabric – trim like pompoms, tassels, lace, or fringe – fusible interfacing – Sewing tools – Sewing machine

STEP 1

Cut the fabric in half lengthwise so that there are two pieces of fabric 21 inches wide and 72 inches long.

STEP 2

Fold each rectangle in half lengthwise and trim the short ends into a point. I did a shallow point, but you can make it steeper if you want.

STEP 3

Cut a piece of interfacing for either one or two table runner piece. Iron it to the back of the fabric.

STEP 4

Cut the trim in half. Pin the trim to one side of the pointed end of the table runner. Make sure that the main side of the trim is facing into the center of the fabric piece.

STEP 5

If your trim is thick you might need to clip it at the point to help it bend around.
