valentine runner

Glittery raspberry ric-rac paired with grey for lovely Valentine table wear:

First, spread out all materials.

After experimenting with all different combinations, simplicity ruled.  Three shades of grey felt cut into 17″ x 14.5″ rectangles, set in symmetrical layout:

Overlap the felt edges & use iron-on adhesive strip to attach together.  Test the ric-rac at seam intervals:

Test on the table prior to gluing…grand idea…wish I would’ve done that because the felt rectangles were too even steven.  Approximately 5″ was removed from the two medium greys.

Attach  the reverse side (grey herringbone) by putting right sides together & sewing all around perimeter minus one short side.  Turn right side out, press, tuck in open edges, pin, pin all around, & zig-zag topstitch.

Press & enjoy!
