Sew table runners with this collection of over one hundred free table runner patterns & tutorials gathered from all over the web. Sew quilted table runners, fancy and elegant designs, or casual and simple runners.
A table runner not only gives you a pretty way to dress up a table, but also serves the practical purpose of providing protection for your bare table against wear and scratches. But even if you're using a table cloth, a table runner can add an additional festive touch. And feel free to change your table runners to reflect the holidays or a change in season.
And one of the simpler table runner designs can make a great first project for a beginner just learning how to sew. And any of the patchwork designs can be a great way to use up any colorful fabric scraps you may have leftover from otherprojects.
And just remember that if you'll be laundering your finished table runner (it's bound to be the recipient of a little spilled food here and there), to preshrink your fabric first (and any trims too) in the same water and dryer temperature in which you'll be laundering your finished runner. And if you'll be using several fabrics of varying colors, you may want to test each fabric first for colorfastness before sewing your runner.
