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.

    Happily married since 2008

      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 :)

        Let us know how this turns out Jackie B. I'm thinking of doing the same thing also!

          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?

              I am having one long table
              on the table will be;
              tall hurricanes w/ candle
              Picture frame lumineers
              small vases of bright pink flowers

              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!
