The table runner can be customized to any table size and with different fabric choices, this project could be for any holiday or everyday.
FolkArt Fabric Paint – Brush On – Pearl White
Star foam stamp
Various Red White & Blue printed fabrics (at least 18″ wide)
1. Cut the leg portion off a pair of jeans. Slice up the side seam and place the leg flat. Use a ruler to square the leg to 18″ on one side. The other side can be as long as you wish. For the design I made, the leg piece measured 18″ x 18″.
2. Apply the fabric paint to the foam stamp with a foam paintbrush and stamp all over the denim. Reload with paint as needed. Allow the paint to dry and heat set with an iron.
3. Cut the printed fabrics into strips that are 18 wide and as long as you wish. For added interest, make each piece a different length.
4. Sew the printed pieces and the painted denim together to form a long strip. You will be sewing them right-sides to right-sides.
Sew a backer for the runner in the same fashion as step 2. Next, place the backer piece (right side down) on top of the runner. Sew around the edge leaving a small opening for turning. Trim the corners on an angle. Turn the runner right side out and press. Topstitch around the outer edge.
