Granny's Fancies

Project Description

What are you most proud of? How talented my grama was...I wish I could embroider like her. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't be afraid to cut these runners. I'm using the other half of these runners to make a valance for my sewing room. I will be hand quilting this project as I think these vintage pieces deserve to be hand quilted.

What you will need

  • My grama's vintage table runners and pillow cases and 30's repro fabrics.

Q&A with Marnel

Debbie C. asked:
What a beautiful way to repurpose old (but treasured) linens. I would think your technique would work well with embroidered hankies, tea towels, and other vintage linens as well. I love the way you framed each piece of embroidered "art".
