If you would like to
purchase a bowtie or Mr.Man onesie
in the next few weeks...
details of this offer are HERE.
Please check it out
my little proposal!
Okay, now for the tutorial:
First you get a simple rectangle of your
favorite fabric and rick-rack.
My fabric is from my mom's old stash...
probably from the 70's!
But it's super cute! Next, you sew three sides together
(right side to right side),
leaving one side open.
Then, pull the right side out
(so you can see the print facing outward).
Pin the last side together
and sew it up.
Follow that up with a seam
around ALL 4 sides.
This will create a good edging for the table runner.
Next, iron all sides down. Then, sew on the rick-rack in whatever style you want.
I sewed it length-wise,
so more rick-rack is visible.
That's it...you are done!
It is just a little spice to put on your
coffee table, side table, or even diningroom table.
I placed snacks and goodies on it for our guests the other night...
it lightens up the room
and brings a freshness to plain 'ol wood colored tables.
