Table runner materials


  1. Measure your table. Determine measurement of table runner specifically based on the length and  width of your table. This project was made for our family dinning table, I decided to cut my length at 80 inches and the width at 10 inches.
  2. Cut both fabrics seperately, place right sides of both fabrics together and pin in place.
  3. To get pointed ends; mark center edge of fabric, mark 4 inches on each sides,  draw lines from center to sides, and cut to create point.Pointed ends Pointed ends
  4. Sew both fabrics together on all edges with about a quarter inch seam allowance. Leave a 5 inch opening on one side, to easily turn fabric to the right side. Remember to back stitch at the beginning and end of each stitch.Sew fabrics together
