10 minute table runner


IMG_4269This is a very easy table runner which is the width of your fabric when done.  Thank you, Sally, for the suggestion.


Take 12″ of your focus fabric and 18″ of the bottom fabric, width of fabric.   Place right sides together and sew each of the long edges.   No, they won’t match, because you want the bottom one to fold over to the top.


After sewing, you have a tube to turn right side out.  (I pressed the seams to the center before turning).  Then press so the borders are the same width.


Fold the end together toward the bottom side.    Can you see my line of stitching (near the top of photo) where I sewed the end closed.   Repeat on other end.



When opened, it looks like this.   I pressed the seam you see before turning it to the inside.


Then because I had the sheep buttons, I sewed them on, but it is totally optional.


One can use this idea for any occasion.   I’m thinking flowers for spring, flags for July, etc.   This one is for our table for Shabbat and I made another matching one as a gift for a friend.   Most of the time  spent was choosing fabric and cutting it.

Enjoy and send a photo of what you have made.

    Thank you for this….I made one and it really worked out well. Would but not sure how to send a picture of it. I was trying for a particular size and that didn’t quite work but that was my fault so I will give this one to my sister.

      I’m so happy you liked the pattern. I’m thinking if you want a larger one, you could try a 12″ size.
