    I was going to make mine as well, but it was going to be much more expensive than buying them. But I wasn't doing special pattern with a cohesive theme : )

    I helped my sister-in-law make hers and we used the iron on stuff. It was super easy & probably faster than sewing all of them.

    I actually just purchased mine today so I have no, idea how great(at least I'm hoping) they are. They were less than $3.00 a piece so I guess we'll see!

      What a neat idea!

          I'm making my own. I ordered ten yards of fabric from ebay and I'm going to sew a navy border around my white and navy damask pattered fabric. Now I just have to find someone with a sewing machine!

            (just click on 'table runners" on the right-hand side menu)
            I just checked quickly and they range in price from $3.10 to $6.99 depending on type of material and size.

            I ordered our chair bows off this site (and I know lots of other BDW brides have ordered stuff off this site as well) -- and they were great! And they came really quickly (like in two days I think!)

            Anywaaay...maybe you really want to make your table runners, in which case ignore this post:-)
            But for the prices on this site you can just buy them for not that much money and maybe save yourself some hassle :-)
            thanksfor posting that link!! I think I'll prob order mine from there...was going to make own with FMIL but I already have such a long list of DIY stuff!!!!
