Simple Table Runner Tutorial

Time to update the credenza with something more vibrant. This project took about 1/2hr start to finish. Little time, big impact!
GeoCentric in ZigZag | Coral and as a back, Earth Solid from Nursery Basics.
Measure your table top. I subtracted 2″ from both lengths so that the wood of the table top would evenly frame the piece when finished. This table top was 46″ x 18″ – so, we measured our fabric to be 44″ x 16″.
Pin right sides together (lining up the edges) Stitch around perimeter using a 1/2″ seam allowance.


Stitch all around leaving a 3-4″ opening in order to turn inside out.


Clip the corners.


Turn inside out. Using a pointy object (like a bone folder) push out the corners to make them neat. Crease the edges and press, making sure to that the base fabric does not peek past the edge of the top fabric. Pin to hold in place.


Topstitch 1/4″ from edge all around, including the area that was open- this will seal it closed. Press well. Finished!
