Accidental Table Runner

Full disclosure: when I did that sewing tutorial last week, I didn't really measure out my fabric properly. I thought it wouldn't matter if my scarf was a little bit wider, but the two layers of cotton ended up being thicker than I realized, even though one layer was lawn fabric (which is fairly soft and lightweight).

That being said, a 19"x70" finished piece of fabric makes a pretty good table runner for our 48" square table. If you want to make one for yourself, measure the length and width of your table. Add 20" to the length (or more if you want more than 10" of drop), and divide the width by 1/2 or 1/3, depending on how wide you want it to be.

Then follow last week's learn-to-sew post, but don't forget to iron, like I did.

In unrelated news, I have been trying to have a tutorial post up on Tuesdays, but I got caught up doing a big redesign of my webpage today before an event tomorrow, and haven't managed to process those images yet. Thursday for sure!
