Home décor fabric is a great choice for table linens. Motifs tend to be bigger and tones more dramatic, plus it’s thicker and more durable – good qualities for this table runner. To soften, we added deep ruffles in a handkerchief linen.
Start with a simple yet bold fabric, add some distinctive decorative stitching, and you can have a stunning table runner perfect for any holiday gathering or special occasion. Remember, “Life is short; use the good china!”
The idea of a dresser cloth might seem a bit old-fashioned, but it not only helps protect the wood surface from hairbrush dings and perfume spills, it also lends a lovely splash of color. Ours has a very vintage vibe.
Bound all around and featuring accent bands and elegant tassels at each end, this table runner is perfect for a formal tabletop setting. It finishes at approximately 86½” x 15″. Choose a metallic cotton for the prettiest sparkle.
At just 16″ x 30”, this runner is almost more like a jumbo placemat. It’s a great size for smaller tables, breakfast bars or as the center décor on a larger table. The pretty patchwork center features four flying geese blocks.
This beautiful runner design is created with two layers of burlap joined by decorative stitching and highlighted with a splash of luxurious silk. We show it as wedding décor, but it would be lovely for a variety of occasions.
The beauty of this solid color runner is in the texture of the pleated squares side by side with the plain squares. The tutorial also shows you a fun way to create mitered corners without using a separate binding strip.
