"Easy-as" Country Style Table Runner
Linen is just one of my favorite things, whether it's old linen table clothes or napkins or pillow slips. It's a luxury in sheets and a necessity in summer clothes. My big indulgence is Cutliver linens which I first experienced at the Slow Living Retreat in Bryon Bay. All the beds inside our Happy Glamper bell tents were made up with Cutliver linen bedding and when we were gifted one of their glorious Marias Robes ... I was hooked. Here's a quick and easy way to introduce a little bit more linen into your home.
Make a "Lazy" Runner
This is the cheats way to make a linen table runner. As the tea towels are already hemmed you don't even need to own a sewing machine!
A vintage linen runner, simply stitched, which I recently purchased from Faded Emporium inspired me to create a humbler DIY version for my long dining table.
Skill level: Easy-as
Tip: Buy your tea towels at a hospitality wholesaler .. they're super cheap, mine were only $1.20 each.
You will need
- 3-5 linen (or linen/cotton mix) tea towels. The number of tea towels will depending on how long you want your table runner to be.
- Embroidery cotton
