DIY Patchwork Table Runner with Lost & Found Christmas

September 8th, 2014

Christmas Fabric week on The Project Girl! I asked several other bloggers and sewests to use their amazing talents to create projects using my Lost & Found Christmas fabric from Riley Blake Designs. Each day this week, I’ll be posting their amazing projects, so check back often and Pin away! 

Hi, I’m Amy and I blog at The Happy Scraps. I love sharing DIY Home Decor, Paper Crafts, & Sewing Projects. When Jen, The Project Girl, asked me if I would like to make something out of her new line of fabric, Lost & Found Christmas, I jumped at the chance! This fabric is SO Yummy!! The colors are deep and rich, and I love the contrast that the black adds to it. Today, I’m going to share a tutorial with you on how to make your own table runner like mine.


Start off by choosing the fabrics that you want to use. I picked a few of the patterns in all the colors they come in. Press your fabric.
