EASY Double-Sided Table Runner

I wanted to make something like this for Thanksgiving and Christmas but never got around to it. I went to Joann's today and their holiday fabric was on sale and it was soooo cute so I had to jump on it.

I'm not the biggest decorator for St. Patrick's Day so I decided to do a Valentine/Easter table runner.
It cost about $5 and only took about 15 minutes...and I love it. Perfect!

This is really so simple, you guys. 

Here's how:
Get 3/8 a yard of 2 fabrics of your choice. You can do this any fabric, doesn't have to be holiday but it makes it more fun because you get two out of one! Then take the fabric and iron it and pin it together as best you can with right sides out, don't worry if there is excess fabric and the sides aren't even because you are going to give it a thick 1 inch seem. After you sew it cut off the excess fabric trying to make it even all around and so there is about 1/4 of an inch seem, then snip around the edges and wash to give it a fraded edge-get it? Super easy! That's it!

Final Product!

Here's the edging---hopefully this helps explain it better.

 The otherside---Easter! Loved that fabric and the best part, the both are glittered a little bit, so fun!

I got a few more Valentine crafts to post so stay tuned! :)


  1. So cute. I should do one of those for my naked kitchen island to fun it up!

  2. Adorable! And great price on those fabrics! Thanks for linking up!

  3. I really love this idea. So adorable.

  4. I made one of these and side that I sewed the material together is much bulkier and not as flat as the side I just folded. I top stiched after, Do I need to take apart and trim the excess material on the inside?
