Fiesta Table Runner

Project by The Crafty Lass

Fun fiesta fabrics to make a table runner for all your celebratory needs! Adapt the measurements to make larger or smaller dependant on your own table requirements.


Ingredients:

  • Fabric

  • Thread

  • Pom Pom Trim (Optional)


Tools:

  • Tape Measure

  • Fabric scissors

  • Sewing machine

  • Pins

  • Needle

  • Iron and ironing board


Method:

1. Choose and Measure

Select which fabrics you would like! I have chosen to use two contrasting tapestry fabrics to create a central panel design on the runner - but, you could of course just use one long piece in one fabric design across the entire length.


To make as the featured make you will need:

4 pieces 70cm x 42cm (for the outer edges)

2 pieces 50cm x 42cm (for the middle panel)


Optionally, you could also add pompom trim at each table runner end, and for this you will need 2 lengths of 45cm.


2. Pin and Sew 1

Put one of your outer edge pieces on to one of your central panel pieces along the 42cm measurement - right sides together and pin into position. Using a 1.5cm seam allowance sew these together and repeat with another of your outer edge pieces on the other side.


3. Pin and Sew 2

Repeat this with your remaining fabric pieces so you have two identical sewn sides.



4. PomPom Trim

Take one of your sewn sides and place one length of your pompom trim on to the very edge. Sew on to secure into position. Repeat this on the other end of your runner side.


5. Construct

Lay your pompom trimmed side and the other side – right sides together. Pin if liked to secure and make sure your pompom trim is all tucked inside. Using a 1cm sewing allowance, sew all the way around the edge – but, leave a 10-15cm gap for turning out!





6. Turn Out

Turn your now constructed table runner out the right way and press if required.



7. Final Sew

Using a 1cm seam allowance, sew all the way around the edge to finish. You could use a decorative stitch if desired.



Et voila! Pompom trim Fiesta Table Runner… Enjoy!
