20 Minute Table Runner Tutorial

I needed to spice up an old hope chest
in my livingroom that we use as a coffee table...
this is a good one!
First, get some old fabric and cut to the size you want.
My fabric ended up as a long rectangle.
I folded the rectangle fabric in half (length-wise).
Make it right side to right side.
Then sew up 2 of the 3 sides,
leaving one opening.
After that, turn inside out with the right sides now facing you.
Then, tuck a little bit of the sides inward on the open end...

and pin across.
Then sew up that last side.
This will leave you with all the sides sewn up
and a plain table runner.

Next, get some jumbo rick-rack,
tuck under one end and pin across the width
on both sides.

Then sew it up along the curved edges to keep it from curling up.

All done!

You can put beverages, snacks, or just leave it as is...
super cute...
and super fast!
Have a great day!!
