It's almost November, so like you I am thinking ahead to Christmas and looking for ideas for quickly stitched gifts. I had fun coming up with this really, really simple table runner. It doesn't take much fabric and the piecing is minimal. The bold, graphic design lends a touch of modern to a traditional motif.
Because of the clever construction method used (similar to a roll-up pillow case) it is completely machine sewn - no binding, no raw edges - everything is enclosed, turned inside out and you're done!
It was so quick to stitch that yesterday afternoon I had time to work out the measurements, write the instructions and make two runners. Once you get the hang of it, each should take no more than an hour (the second one took 30 minutes, start to finish).instant download from Craftsy for $2.50. Have fun!
