DIY Easter Egg Table Runner - Sewing Tutorial

I have a couple of quick last minute Easter projects for you!

These are SOOO fast and easy to make!!! 

What I Used -

Less than 1/2 yard of main fabric
Scraps for the "eggs"
Double sided Heat N Bond
Scrap of the main for the mug rug
Scrap of coordinating fabric for the mug rug

Step 1 -

First you're going to hem around all 4 sides. 
Just fold over 1/4" and press. Then fold over 1/2" and press. 
OR you can just cut it with pinking sheers. ;) 

Step 2 -

Cut your double sided Heat N Bond to fit your scraps. 

Follow the directions on the Heat N Bond package to attach it to your scraps.

Leave the paper backing on!!!!

Cut out 7 eggs (6 for the table runner, 1 for the mug rug).

Step 3 -

Peal the paper off the back of the eggs and iron onto the table runner.

Step 4 -

Zigzag stitch around all the eggs.
I used a coordinating thread but I'm thinking it may have popped more if I had used a contrasting thread. 

Now, on to the mug rug!!!!

Step 1

I used 2 different prints in the same color for the front and back of my mug rug. If those prints look familiar they are the rain drops on my Splish Splash Rain Cape. ;) 

I cut the double sided Heat N Bond to fit the scraps. 

Step 2

Following the instructions on the Heat N Bond, iron to the wrong side of one of your pieces. 
Peel the paper off the back and iron it onto the wrong side of your other piece.
Cut around the sides with pinking shears (or regular scissors just to even it all up). 

Step 3 -

Sew around the edges. 

Then iron the egg onto the center of the mug rug.

Step 4

Zigzag stitch around the edges.

Once again I used a coordinating thread. I think next time I will definitely try a contrasting thread. ;)

You are all done!! :D

I also have a tutorial for the Easter Egg Centerpieces! :D Another fast, easy, cheap home decor project! 

So, what do you think?? Easy peasy??
