I'm kidding, I didn't really plan that. But I was excited to hear that hehe. It would be really nice to have more than a corner of a room for everything. If only I had gotten that on tape so I could really hold him to it. : )
Here are the detailed "plans" for the project. I wanted it to be a bit wider, but the black fabric I had for the back wasn't wide enough - remember I was dealing with scraps here.
tshirt quilt. So I thought why not? It will give the table a little added protection from hot things and wet things. Plus, I love adding things to a project to make it even more time-consuming!
Steps to making a table runner out of scraps when you have little to no time:
- Make a rough sketch and plan your dimensions.
- Cut fabric
and forget to add in seam allowances on at least 2 of the sections.
- Realize your scrap of fabric for the back is about 1/4" too narrow, but go with it anyway.
- Stack batting, then backing right side up, then top wrong side up. (So right sides of the fabric should be touching)
- Sew everything together around the edge, leave an opening to turn it right side out and clip the corners before you turn it right side out.
- Realize you shouldn't have just gone with it when your fabric was too narrow because now you have a big fat hole in the side of your table runner.
- Since you have no time, just sew up the hole and plan to put a giant bowl over that section of the table runner. Plan to sew across the table runner (to prevent the batting from bunching) and do something to disguise/fix the hole later.
