Valentine’s Table Runner

With all those Christmas decorations taken down, the apartment feels a bit empty. I want to jazz it up a bit for other holidays throughout the year. Here’s my latest project – A reversible table runner.

I chose vintage looking fabrics that I though coordinated well. And to help them stand out I made a scalloped edge (which I made a pattern for myself from graph paper – so proud!) in another coordinating fabric.

I think they are so cute!


  • 1/3 yard Valentine’s fabric
  • 1/3 yard Cowboy fabric
  • 1/2 yard red polka dots fabric
  • 1/2 yard red horsehoe fabric

I used the 1/3 yards of fabric as is – no cutting (unless of course they came off the bolt really crooked!) And cut 2 scalloped edge pieces from the 1/2 yard of  each of the coordinating fabrics. I attached the scallops to the 1/3 yards on both ends and then put rights sides together and stitched ’em up leave a 3″ hole to turn right side out. I top stitched around the whole thing.

Now I’ve got 2 new table runners out of one “sew-simple” project!
