I’ve been so pleased with our no sew roman shade from mini blinds that I bought some more fabric from Tonic Living and made a little runner.
This was super easy.
Just figure out the length and width you want the runner.
Cut your fabric 2 inches longer and wider than you want it.
I folded the hem over twice so it would have a cleaner line which is why I gave an extra two inches for the length and width. When it folds over the side of the table the thicker hem seems to make it lay nicer, especially on our round table which can do weird things to runners. I ironed the hem before gluing.
Run a line of fabric glue (don’t use regular glue!) under the hem and press evenly along the edge. Use wet paper towels to wipe up any excess glue. You may need to run an extra line of glue once you fold it over You want the entire hem glued down and secure.
Notice the trim around the peninsula? It’s almost done! I’ll be back to share all the details later.
It coordinates but isn’t “matchy” with our no sew roman shade that is on the window over the sink. I couldn’t get a picture of both together, but when you walk into the kitchen you can see both.
The fabric is from Tonic Living, but I don’t see it up on the website anymore. We got our roman shade fabric from there too. Love that store!
Also, make sure to go to my paint color blog Involving Color this Monday for another paint color party!
