As part of my re-decorating plan, I was on the search for a colourful table runner to tie-in with some of the other changes I made in the living room. The few table runners I found were either the wrong colour, or way outside my budget…at $60 and $80 each. So I decided to make a table runner with some beautiful fabric that I found at a fabric store, and as luck would have it, Sears contacted me around the same time to see if I would like to try their Sears Kenmore 50 Stitch Sewing Machine. I was thrilled at the opportunity to be able to create my sewing project with a brand new machine.
4. Take the runner to the sewing machine and carefully sew around all 4 sides of runner using a straight stitch, turning fabric 90 degrees to stitch around corners. Cut threads when done. Finished size is approx. 13″ x 40″.
5. Press the table runner to remove all wrinkles.
