Life has been pretty hectic here lately and time in front of the sewing machine has been in short supply. This morning, I managed to find a spare hour and make up a reversible table runner for our meals table. It was surprisingly quick to make but has given our meals area a big lift.
Best of all it is reversible so that I can easily change the look and freshen things up a bit.
When it comes to home furnishings, I like items to be sleek and modern. I teamed two Aqua Prints from the Washi Collection by Timeless Treasures with some Robert Kaufman Essex Linen for the table runner, which measures 12″ x 36 “.
If you would like to make your own you will need:
0.5 yard (0.4 m) of Fabric 1 (Rashida Coleman-Hale Washi Squiggle Aqua)
0.5 yard (0.4 m) Fabric 2 (Rashida Coleman-Hale Washi Foulard Aqua)
0.5 m (0.4 m) Linen (Essex Linen – White)
0.5 yard (0.4m) Heavy Fusible Interfacing
Note: all seam allowances are 1/4 inch.
1. Cut Fabrics
- Fabric 1 – Cut rectangle measuring 28 1/2 x 12 1/2 ” (72.5 cm x 32cm)
- Fabric 2 – Cut rectangle measuring 28 1/2 x 12 1/2 ” (72.5 cm x 32cm)

You can see a similar table runner that I made here.
