Here is a lovely table runner to adorn the head table at a wedding reception made by Clarrisa!
Kitchen Towels (not terry cloth)-I purchased mine from “All About Blanks”. (https://www.allaboutblanks.com/blankshop/pc/Tan-Cream-Check-Kitchen-Tea-Towels-308p717.htm)
The number depends on the finished size of the table runner you want. I used 2 that were 20”x27” each, making my table runner 20”x54”. Add more towels for a longer table runner.
½ yard of 58-60” wide lace
Roll of 1” wide Floriani Wet n Gone Tacky tape
Nylon tulle or Nylon Organza to stitch flowers. (I used one yard each of 2 different colors.)
Floriani Wet n Gone Stabilizer to fit hoop for stitching flowers
2 pieces of Floriani Heat n Sta Stabilizer 10”x13”
3D Freestanding Flower Embroidery Designs
Floriani Embroidery Thread for Monogram on ends and 3D Flowers
RNK Heat Craft Tool
Standard Sewing thread to coordinate with Lace fabric
Quilter’s Select Invisible thread
Quilter’s Select Glue Stick
Glue Gun and glue sticks
Water Soluble Fabric Marker
I embroidered flowers that were about 3-4” wide. I stitched 12 total flowers, 6 for each end.
1. Prepare 3D flower designs in your software to put as many flower pieces as possible in your largest hoop. If your design has the option to stitch the flowers with or without the center, stitch only the top flower layer with the center leaving the remaining flower layers empty in the center. This will take out some of the bulk in the center. It takes a while to stitch out the flowers so start this first and while it’s stitching you can start preparing the table runner.
