You can easily make one of these nice table runners in
about half an hour. They can really dress up your table
next time you have guests.
Here's how to do it.
Cut your fabric 18" wide and 48" long.
Press all raw edges under 1/4".
Turn under 1/4" again and stitch a narrow hem on all
Turn corners under to wrong side.
Make sure corners meet and form a V. Tack corners
Attach tassels to points.
Here is a handy little hint. Machine
washing can turn your tassels into a tangled mess. Instead
of sewing them to the runner, sew a small shirt button on
the wrong side near the point. Slip the loop of the tassel
over the button and no one will be the wiser. Next time it
goes in the washing machine, slip the tassels off and wash
as usual. Your tassels will be just like new when you put
them back on.
