Welcome to another edition of Blog with Friends!
This month we have 7 bloggers that have signed up to bring you some Thanksgiving fun! Look for all of them at the bottom of this post!
So here you have it! The Fun and Reversible Table Decor! I didn't want to call it a runner since it doesn't run down the table and I didn't want to call it a mat, that sounds too boring. So I asked my Blog with Friends friends and that is the name we came up.
This is SO easy and SO fast. I think it took all of 20 minutes to make.
STEP 1 -
Fold your fabric in half and then half again.
Take your measuring tape and measure down both sides, marking the length you want.
Measure from the corner down, marking the same measurement as your sides.
Connect the marks and cut.
You can use the first cut as a template for the 2nd fabric. Makes it easier that way. ;)
This is what you should have.
STEP 2 -
Pin your circles right sides together. Make sure to leave an opening so you can turn it right side out.
Sew along the edges.
Now you'll want to cut little marks in your seam allowance to allow for a neater look when you turn it right side out.
Turn it right side out and press.
Fold the fabric in where the opening is and press.
Top stitch all around the edges (this closes that opening).
YOU'RE DONE!!! :D
The centerpieces in the picture were made from things I picked up at the Dollar Tree. It cost me about $10 to make all three.
I picked up 3 tins, 2 bags of gourds, 1 package of leaves and 4 fabric flowers.
I stuffed plastic bags into the tins and covered them with the leaves.
Then I mixed the 2 colors of gourds and put them on top.
Next, I cut the long stems down to just a few inches and placed them in the middle tin.
