No Sew Patriotic Table Runner

It's time for a quickie table runner project and one that requires NO SEWING!
 Really!  It's as simple and as lazy as you can get!

I do love to use my sewing machine, but I decided to make this easy "No Sew" table runner with some patriotic fabric I picked up a couple of weeks ago.  

I simply folded the fabric in half lengthwise and cut a slit into one end of the folded area. Then I tore the fabric in half (see below) instead of using the scissors.  This technique gives the fabric a perfectly straight line to it and is super simple to do! Don't be afraid of ripping your fabric!  I know some of you already use this technique, but for those who've never tried it, practice on a scrap piece of fabric before your final project.

I used this same technique to straighten all the other edges of the runner and then simply ironed it.  What could be easier than that?  This technique can be done with most cotton or broadcloth type fabrics.
Once again, be sure and practice on a scrap piece of your fabric to make sure it can be done using this technique.


  1. Simple enough...I love it! Great idea!

  2. I've ripped fabric before and it's so satisfying isn't it. The fabric is lovely and it looks great with the patriotic fireworks.

  3. ooh, love that runner! Don't know how I missed that post! It really does look great with your little firecrackers!
