We have a very long table in our dining room. With children and grandchildren visiting often it is great to have so much space. I wanted to do something to brighten it up so I bought this 3 yard piece of toweling fabric perfect for a really long table runner. The sides are hemmed and ready to use.
I added a double row of ruffles to each end.
The fabric is so bright and cheery
When I bought the fabric for the runner I also bought some half yard pieces of each of these ,
"Flower Sugar" fabrics printed by Lecien.
This is what I made from some of this fun fabric.
Remember the birds I made for "Pay It Forward" gifts here? I had so much fun with them I made some more.
The tray my birds are resting in was made for me as a gift by my daughter in law Lyndie.
These three birds have decided to nest here on our dining room table. No flying to a new home for them.
My simple centerpiece brightens up the whole room.
The birds are so fun to make, check out my post here to see where to get the pattern and where to find a tutorial showing how to make them.
