Table Runner Dilema

Recommended Posts

Jackie, I bet you could do it, personally I would make them, I have faith in you, and yes the fabric glue our iron on hem (stich witchery) will work for this particular situation.

I was going to suggest the same thing- I use the iron-on stuff all the time for the hem on Mike's pants. It works very well and it's VERY easy to use. Try one and see how you like it.

To add my voice to the crowd - they are SO easy to make. Stich witchery is the answer, find the fabric you like, find a neutral backing (cheap felt is fine), put the stitch witchery between the two, iron, and you are done.

 

I know it seems like a big deal, but the ladies at your fabric shop will help (they LOVE a bride-to-be), they'll probably even cut the fabric to size and shape for you.

 

You can do it. We know you can.

thanks girls your right. I am going to make that my next project. I have actually used the fabric glue stuff for my gym pants and I think that would work fine. I'll be on the hunt for fabric after I finish my current project. Thanks again :)

What is the name of this product and where can I find it?........i'm feeling a bit inspired today and i think that I want to try to make my own runners also!!

I have thought about making my own runners as well. It'd be cheaper than renting.. my resort charges an arm and a leg for every detail

Wow, md ocr, super glad you bumped this thread! Has anyone used the iron-on hem stuff with organza? Would an iron melt that kind of fabric?

What I need but absolutly cant find and Mariana our w/c doesnt have is dark blue table runners, and the more I think about it, even If I could find them the chance of me matching the color of the runner to the chair ties is not good.

So finally my question. What do you think about bamboo table runners? They are pretty cheap and are a nuetral color. Here is a picture of one from orientaltradingcompany.com Try and picture it without the weird yellow table cloth underneath. What do you think? Yes or No?

Love the bamboo, and like you said you have no idea where to begin in a fabric store, these would be easy to transport!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
