Ruffled Halloween Table Runner

Photobucket
I don't know about you, but I am ready for some Halloween crafts on this ole' blog. My son's b-day is this weekend, so I have been busy try to spruce up our Halloween decorations. He is having a Halloween themed party, so we need to have cute decorations right? Well a few weeks ago I had the opportunity to make a Ruffled Table Runner for the ever fabulous people at The Ribbon Retreat. Today I am sharing the guest post I did for them two weeks ago.

Let's get started....

For fabric, I used Little Black Dress from Moda 
and Costume Clubhouse from Riley Blake.

I had 1/4 a yard of each fabric. You want to have at least 3 different fabrics in coordinating colors. These will be the panels in your table runner. My orange polka-dot fabric I saved for my ruffles. I laid out all of the fabric. Each 1/4 yard was folded in half lengthwise. I then laid out my panels.

Pin your panels together. When doing my first two panels, I sewed the raw edges together.

I then pinned my third panel and sewed

Now that your three panels are sewn together, you can move onto your "ruffle fabric".

Take your 1/4 yard of "ruffle fabric" and cut in half. Now you will have two pieces of "ruffle fabric" (picture on the left). I then cut each of these pieces of fabric in half again lengthwise (picture on the right). I ended up with four strips of fabric.

Once you pin and sew your ruffles, you're finished!  
Add a crafty candy corn vase and you are finished.

  5. Cute idea but as a sewing school and fabric store owner, I would tweak this with a backing in any of your coordinated fabrics. Your ruffle gets put on right sides together, lay the back on top, sew around and leave a small opening to pull right side out. Top stitch all the way around and now your tablerunner will be reversible and launder up great with no fraying edges! Great blog by the way. I am 61 and have raised my family on a tight budget, remodeled ugly home, gardened, froze and canned anything I could get my hands on. It is good to see that living on a budget is back in "vogue"!
