Sew Woodsy: Halloween Table Runner

Halloween Table Runner

Last week I stumbled across a post "Adventures of ONE CrAzY LaDy" about making a reversible table runner. I've only owned one table runner in my life time and recently have been wanting to change it out. As soon as I saw this AWESOME tutorial I figured I'd give it a try {and of course} make a Halloween one!

Below you'll find a few pictures of my new creepy table runner! I bought a 1/4 yard of fabric for both sides {knowing it was going on my hutch and not my actual table made my need for excess fabric less}. The cool spider print is from Wal*Mart for $2, and I used a very thick black velvet for the other side {also $2 from a Home Fabric Decor outlet}. Not sure if I will ever really showcase the black velvet side, but I wanted to keep one side neutral. I found the beaded spiders on ribbon at JoAnn Fabrics for $5 for a 1/2 yard {that cost me more than both pieces of fabric}. It took me a bit longer to sew it than I had planned, and I learned a lot about sewing with a very thick fabric and a very thin/transparent/stretchy fabric. Not sure if I will ever sew with that fabric combo again! Needless to say I'm pleased with how it came out {minus my mishaps}, and am happy I was able to learn a lot in the process.

That fabric is awesome, the spiders are great! I think you'll find the basic black side is handy to have. My friend used one to make a very elegant and striking Valentine display one year. Thank you for joining us at A Crafty Soiree! I hope you'll come back next week and link up again!

Gorgeous!! Some materials can be such a pain. I'm going to make my daughter a pillow out of satin. Another blogger actually gave me lining for it. Now I just have to do it!! And the list goes on.
