I shared this simple Fall Table runner tutorial on the Accuquilt blog last month, but there is still time to make one for your Thanksgiving table. And if you buy the linen table runner already sewn, it makes it a fast and easy project to make in an afternoon.
FALL LEAVES TABLE RUNNER TUTORIAL
*4 colors of Felted Wool
*Pre-made Linen Table Runner (I purchased this one at Hobby Lobby for under $10.)
*Thread (I used a light tan on all the leaves)
*Accuquilt or other fabric cutting machine (or good scissors)
Step 1: Run all the felted wool through your Accuquilt Cutter to make your leaves and acorns to put on the tablerunner. I used about 20 total leaves and acorns for this project.
Step 2: Pin your leaves on your table runner….make sure that you have the leaves facing all different directions so your table runner will look good from all angles.
Step 3: Stitch the felted wool leaves and acorns into place on the linen table runner. I used a light tan thread to match the linen and make some contrast to the wool but you could also use matching thread.
Repeat step 3 for all the leaves on the table runner and you are done!
Wish I had time to make these for our Thanksgiving Dinner tables at work. Keeping it in mind for next year though. Love it. Thanks for sharing.
