No Sew Table Runner {2}



Wandering in a fabric store and looking at and touching all kinds of beautiful fabric is one of my favorite things to do. I was thrilled to come across this beautiful fabric in a stack of returned fabric at Calico Corners and thought it would be perfect for the look I am going for in my kitchen update.

I decided to use it for a table runner and wanted to do something a little different and less formal. This is an easy and quick way to make a table runner and no sewing is involved.

Simply cut the fabric piece to the desired size - I used an old table runner as a pattern. Begin to pull threads, fraying all four edges as evenly as possible. Remember - perfection is not what you are going for here. The charm is in the frayed edges and the fact that they may not look exactly even. You want it to look like it happened naturally, over time. This took me less than 1/2 hour to make and I adore the look!

See in this post, how I used the same method last fall, to make a burlap table runner.

Happy Wednesday!
