Table Runner & Coasters


This took a little longer than I thought. In fact the coasters took me longer than the table runner. I must remember never to bind coasters again. Sewing up the seams on the binding was so fiddly. The table runner measures 16.5" x 41.5" and the coasters 4 3/8" x 4 3/8".

This was one piece of fabric so there was no piecing to do.

The back I just did in a plain fabric and the binding from the same fabric as the back.

There was just enough fabric to make one of these little fabric baskets. The tutorial can be found at

If you notice the inside I've sewn my layers together. That's not in the tutorial but I find it makes it sturdier.
And one last photo. It wouldn't be complete without some matching pumpkins. I actually made these a few days ago, remember my pumpkin post, the colours matched perfectly.

As usual after each sewing project it's off to clean my sewing room. I always say I'll be tidy and organized while I'm sewing but I just can't seem to manage that. It really is like a bomb site. LOLLL
