Now, we don't usually keep everything set out there and since it's just the two of us normally, we don't really feel the need to do so, but, I did decide it was time to get a table runner. However, why buy one when I could make one instead? I found this incredible tutorial through Pinterest over at Crissy's Crafts.
How great does this look? So I created my own version using these simple materials:
2 yards material
no sew tape
Seriously, does it get simpler? That's right. I didn't think so either. So, first, I took the 2 yards of fabric and cut them in half lengthwise. (I'll save the other for a table runner in another season.) Then, I created a hem and using the iron, first made a crease in the hem. Then, I used the no sew tape and put it inside my hem.
|I love this stuff. I plan on using it for lots of things.|
Then, I laid the first piece of ribbon down over the no sew tape and ironed that (front only this time).
Then I repeated the process with an orange ribbon over the brown one.
