I decided to make something simple. Because I am really just beginning to sew again, the simple, fast projects are more rewarding. For one, they actually turn out the way they were intended. This is always a boost to the "sewing confidence". Second, I am not known for my patience, and these simple projects can be done in under 1 hour (maybe two). Anyways, are you d-y-i-n-g to see what I made???
I used some of my fabric stash to make a ruffled table runner!! They are all over the blogosphere so I can't even say where I first got the idea... My version is really simple... (as mentioned earlier)....
Now I am feeling kind of stage shy.... I almost don't want to show you. Haha!
The fabric is a really pretty bright mustard color... It is some kind of linen/cotton blend I think. I don't know for sure because I got it in the bargain area of the fabric store for $1 a meter! :)
This was a fun afternoon project. (I even made the white table cloth underneath the table runner... I used old Ikea curtains. I just cut off the rings and hemmed it to match the other side. I think I will leave this one white, but I have a few more I am going to try dying... stay tuned).
I really love the finished product. And I think the rooster does too!!
(Song-of-the-dayish is Somos Novios by Andrea Bocelli and Katharine McPhee... I don't know what they are singing, but I love it anyway).
