A while back I bought a 1/12 scale table and decided it needed to be decorated for Valentines Day, it's a work in progress and I am sure will be ever changing, but today I made a runner for my table and it was simple. Here is a little tutorial if you want to make one.
Simple supplies: lace, ribbon, and stitch witchery
1. I cut two pieces of lace to fit my table, leaving a little to drape over the end.
2. With my two pieces of lace laid side by side, flat sides together, I topped with a matching length of stitch witchery, topped with a piece of seam binding (not pictured sorry). This will be the back of your runner. Then "bond" it together with an iron.
It's a sandwich: lace, stitch witchery, seam binding (or preferred ribbon).
3. Now for the top of your runner, flip your lace over and repeat the sandwich - adding your decorative ribbon last (on top) ... caution make sure your ribbon doesn't have an embellishment that will melt when the iron hits it !! To solve my problem I laid a piece of fabric between the iron and ribbon and it worked on the second try !
Here's my runner The table is 5 3/4" long and depth is 2 1/2"
Last week I mailed my minis to Debby for the swap. She is the host for the swap so she divides them up and sends them out. I can't wait to get our packages, there are 19 of us in the swap ... SO excited 19 minis ! Thanks for visiting. XO E
