I get all boggled down with the idea of measuring and then, when that happens I become
intimated by a sewing machine, actually even a needle and thread.
But, as we know necessity is the Mother of Invention and when a grand baby needs a
table runner for a party, her Grammy is going to come through.
That is how this DIY no sew table Runner came about.
I made a table runner for Molly's Birthday Party and then I made one for me.
In just a few simple steps and with these supplies you can have your
own no sew table runner in a matter of 30 minutes.
When Rebecca called and asked if I would make a couple of table runners for
Molly's Minnie Mouse Birthday party, I said of course.
However, my sewing machine has been tucked away since Christmas.
( I am more of a gardener than a stitchy sort of person.)
So, I said to myself- hum...
then I remembered that years and years ago I used some
stuff you iron on to fabric to make it stick together.
Finally the light went off, fusible adhesive.
If you have never worked with fusible adhesive
you might want to give it a try.
You just need a hot iron and fabric and you are in business, all sorts of crafts,
appliques, lettering and simple mending can be done.
Just remember to place the bumpy side down
of the adhesive on the " wrong," side of the fabric.
You will need these supplies~
1. Choice of fabric
2. Heat & Bond is what I used ( fusable bonding web)
5. Measuring tape
6. Straight pins
7. Ironing board
My table runner is 16" x 70", to determine this I measured my table and then
took into account the seam allowance.
Fusible adhesive has paper on one side and adhesive on the other
make sure you never iron on the adhesive side or it will mess up your iron.
I have my eye on some adorable fabric for Easter, and I just can't wait to get started!
