The pictures of runners, napkins, sashes that they have been sending me are all just a bit off in color. Did anyone go to a fabric store and make their own? Is this very time consuming/difficult? Would it be less expensive?

 

I am hating trying to pick my decorations and linen color via emailed pics as I cannot put the ribbon and such with it to see how far off it is...

 

Suggestions?

Im making my runner. I went to Joanne Fabrics and they had my color to a T in a fancy shimmery silk... normally like 18.99 per yard.. but I had a super coupon through an email.. and it was only 7.99 per yard... soo I grabbed the rest of the bolt. I am just using mending tape in clear.... this way I get a super straight edge... I cant sew straight to save the life of me.

I am making my own table runners. I bought very basic fabric that matches the color I want and got this fuse/tape stuff that is basically like a double face tape that melts and bonds when you iron it. No sewing the edges- yeah! And I got all the fabric (enough for 10 tables) labor day weekend for less than $50

I am making my own with the help my Marth Stewart FMIL. I saw these and fell in love. Found out all you need is a projector, material and paint.

I made my own table runners, just contacted the wedding planner and asked for table measurements. Bought the fabric at fabric store to match my colors. I chose to run a ribbon down the 2 sides, so that I wouldn't have to sew. I just used fabric glue for the ribbon. This added color and stopped the freying. I then used the no sew tape, that you iron, for the ends. Simple enough with some help from my mom. Cost was about 40.00 for 5 table runner....very cost effective! Adds color to the standard resort linens at most resorts.
