White Cotton/Poly Fabric for the runner, and a lining of Black and White Geometric Cotton Print. Black Embroider Machine Thread.
What was your inspiration?
I was inspired by Country Living Magazine, June 2012 issue, a DIY project how to make a table runner from drop cloth fabric, stencils, a permanent black marker, and fabric paint.
What are you most proud of?
Instead of black paint and drop cloth, I used my general purpose sewing machine and embroidery machine.
My version is 63" long by 13 "wide on soft white cotton/poly fabric. Stitching all the ruler marks and following up with machine embroidering black numeral 1 through 7.
The runner (back) is lined with a contemporary black and white geometric cotton print. Its handsome, superbly made, and ready for your table.
Be sure to look at the matching Wine Tote No. 7 I made from the same soft white cotton/poly fabirc.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
This is a long project. Take your time. Measure, measure, measure.
