In Fabric, Sewing Tutorial

Go for a stroll over at Craftzine and check out my new Table Runner tutorial! I made it using my Family Cottage prints on hemp/organic cotton canvas and paired it with a nice solid brown canvas (also organic cotton!). Of course I had to add a dose rickrack, cuz that’s what I do.

These prints are available in my shop in 4-Pack Sample Sets. Each set, a warm and a cool, has 4 cuts measuring 9″ x 13″. To make the runner, I cut each of the sample cuts in half, approx. 9″ x 6.5″.

Of course, you could also use whatever prints you have in your stash. This is an easy way to showcase your favorites!

    Ive always wondered why stores keep rickrack on the shelves. Its so old fashioned and dated. But…..”peeking out” like you put it was so Cute!

    I’m learning how to sew, this was my first turned out pretty well…I don’t have a large cutting pad and managed to make my large rectangle rather crooked, but I love it and it was a great project! I’ll make another one for winter and get the rectangle right.

    I adore this table runner! In fact, I just made one using Nature-ology fabric (by Studio E) from my stash, and backed with neutral hemp fabric. I went without the ric-rac (but will try it out next time!) and it looks brilliant!! Thanks for sharing the tutorial, Betz!!
