Table Runner

I've been sewing A LOT lately.  I think I like it because I don't have to think.  I just have to keep the sewing machine going in a straight line.  (hmmm...I wonder what that says about me...?)  This was one of my favorite projects from the past week.  I was scrambling to come up with some decorations for a Bridal Shower (shout out to Aimee and Matt - Holla!...okay I'm embarrassed) and decided to turn a couple of old sheets into table runner.  Two sheets + wonder under = very quick and easy table runner.   I LOVE wonder under! (sewing nerd alert!)

I now want to start ripping up more sheets and seeing what other things can be created.  I may post some of the other projects later.  I'm on a huge men's shirt reconstruction kick!  


  1. Wow...I am very impressed!! Check out this link for an idea on how to make a little girl's dress out of a man's shirt: http://sewing.craftgossip.com/cool-idea-little-girls-dress-from-dads-shirt/2009/03/27/

  2. I wish you had pointed that out to me when I was there! So cute! I wish that I actually sewed in some of my time. I'm also amazed at what you can create! But, you'll have to explain to me some other time what on earth wonder under is ...

  3. Ha ha - Sarah, this is the dress that I just made. Charis wore it on Sunday. I'm now working on tweaking the design a little...adding a belt, and some appliqué.

    Wonder under is just a name brand fusible webbing. It just makes fabric iron on.

  4. Nicely done! I'm so glad you're having so much fun with your sewing machine, and that homemaking and child-rearing are such ample and excellent outlets for all of that creativity!
