In this blogging world we all come across others who inspire us to try a project. Such is that with Linda over at LindaGLovingHome. Linda is so talented with creating beautiful things for the home and she has really blown me away with her many table runner designs. When I saw her Fall Harvest runner, I became instantly inspired to try to make one. She was kind to send me a pattern so I gave it a whirl. This is the inspiration design I absolutely adored.
Simply gorgeous, and I love how she mixes pattern designs while adding a few detailed touches. You can see all her other beautiful designs here. It’s worth taking a visit to her blog. After I finished my dining room makeover, I realized this table could use a new runner. I’ve had this runner for years and think it’s time to give it a rest.
Now -I’m by far- no means a seamstress,just at the beginner stages when I made this table runner
I finally had the opportunity to go fabric shopping – (I was a kid in the candy store – wanting everything)
I made it a bit longer just in case I want to use it for the dining table. I really love the color and pattern which brightened up this area
I goofed big time on the scalloped end.. (don’t ask how mine came out in this totally different shape..lol)
But all in all – I’m pretty happy about the outcome.
Instead of using regular lining, I used the back of the fabric so I have the option for another look when I flip it over.
Ok guys.. I’ve tried my luck at this, next up is a bed runner..- she makes fabulous ones.. so I have to give that a try.. Thanks Linda for the inspiration! Fingers crossed.
