How To Make A Christmas Table Runner and Napkins
(Updated 5th January 2022)
In this guide we will show you how to make an easy table runner and napkins for a festive table. The ideal project if you have never made anything before using a sewing machine, napkins and table runners just require a simple stitch in a straight line and no other accessories are needed. It couldn’t be easier and is a great way to practise basis sewing techniques.
We've teamed up with Upcycler, Lins Drabwell, to show you how she made this fun festive table runner and napkins.
This is a lovely, cost-effective way to really enhance your Christmas décor and wow your guests with your new skills! Sometimes ready-made table furnishings can be a little traditional or restrictive in colours so why not make your own? You could also make these for any time of year, a spring pattern for Easter celebrations for example. For our table runner and napkins project, we’ve used the Christmas Homes Fabric in Vert to provide a modern but seasonal backdrop. It’s 100% cotton but durable and machine washable at 30 degrees which is ideal for tableware.
