Table Runner: Something For Everyone!
The fabric you choose for your table camp sets the mood for the meal or the party. For a beginner sleep stress, a runner makes an ideal project to help you learn the machine’s mechanics. Make a table runner with two different fabrics on the front and back to give the dual purpose at different times of the year. Wash and dry the material before cutting. And sew to prevent shrinkage after sewing. Even without much experience, you should be able to complete the project in about an hour or two. After selecting a red, white and blue fabric or fabric with American flags or other patriotic symbols. Then cut a back to match its size out of red blanket. Sew the two pieces together, right, the sides turn, leave one end unsewn to twist the runner inside.
Run the top stitch 1/4 inch from the edge of the finished side of the runner after turning the right sides out. This closes the end and adds decorative stitches that help lay flat. To create a table runner for an elegant dinner party. Then choose a satin or acetate with machine-embroidered long-standing flowers and leaves. Pull one of the colors from the flowers to the back of the same or similar material. For example, a deep silver or gold fabric with golden tribes and burgundy flowers works best with a wine-brewery. Then for extra feeling, the runners make longer than your table by about 18 inches if you want it to hang on each side. With two different fabrics on each side of the runner. All you need is flat fiber filler material to sandwich between the two sides to give the runner a little body and lift.
After sewing the pieces together, right, face the sides, leave one end open to turn runners right side out. Finish the end stitch by quilting 1/4 inch from the edge. With the unfinished edges underneath the seam. Add diagonal machine-quilted seams on top to complete it. When you want a table runner working for all seasons, cut cloths of different color solid fabrics at least 3 inches wide. And 16 inches long. Sew them together, repeat color scheme with 1/2 inch seams until you have a single piece of length that is needed. You need 30 3-inch bands for a 60-inch runner. Cut out a felt of a felt or soft material to add some interface or fiber fill between the two layers.
