Well, hey there! Hope you had a great weekend. Sunday was my birthday!! No huge plans, just a nice day spent with the family. I did have the best birthday present ever when our little girl told me, “I Love You.” for the first time! And you know I melted!
So who is ready for Thanksgiving this week? I have just a few last minute projects to put together before the family comes. Nothing too major so I’m looking forward to relaxing a little these few days. Because it’s about to get craaazzyy busy! Last week I shared with you my holiday table. Today, I’m going to show you how I made the table runner that you see here. So easy!!
I started with a painter’s drop cloth that I picked up at Lowe’s for around $10. I cut the fabric to the size I wanted and then hemmed the edges. “Waaaait a second, but that girl can’t sew!” you say. Yep, and that’s why I love Stitch Witchery! It’s the perfect fix for any fellow no-sewers like me! Holla!!
Stitch Witchery is a fusible bonding web that has easy to follow instructions. Just fold over the fabric you want to hem and iron!
After I “hemmed” my fabric, it was time to stencil my design. I love these Arabesque stencils from Martha Stewart. I purchased these a few months ago when I made the stenciled wooden tray.
In this case, you want to be sure to have plenty of paint on the sponge for good coverage. Be sure to put something under your fabric as the paint will bleed through just a little. Then you’ll end up with all these pretty little stars on your table. ;)
