Day 1 - A Creative Bone
Day 2 - Creativity in the Word
Day 3 - Words for Wednesday - Descent
Today, my plan is to try and give you a quick project that you can use in your thanksgiving celebrations. For us Canadians, that would be this weekend, however, I love the theme of giving thanks so we will continue on that for the rest of the month and as a bonus feature for my American readers.
I have never attempted a tutorial before! This isn't my idea, you can search 10 minute table runner on Youtube and see better tutorials than this one will be, however, I hope you'll humour me and play along at my first attempt. This really did take only 10 minutes, but I didn't count choosing my fabric because that took a long time!
Choose 2 fabrics that compliment one another.
Use the width of the fabric (if they aren't the same width, trim to same width).
Cut your feature fabric 12" wide x width of fabric
Cut your backing fabric 18" wide x width of fabric
|These are the 2 fabrics I chose. Teddy bear fabric is the feature fabric.|
|Right sides together.|
|Use a 1/4" seam|
|What it looks like after it is sewn.|
|Turn it right side out and center the feature fabric|
|Press, making sure that your borders are even. (I didn't trim my fabrics to the same width until after I sewed.)|
|Fold in half lengthwise and sew across short end. (Feature fabric on the outside.)|
|Fold out and turn.|
|Press your 10 minute runner and you're done!|
|I added a little embellishment with a button|
|There it is on my table!!! So easy|
