supplies for table runner

Measure your table. You’ll want your fabric to be between 2/3-1/2 the width of the coffee table, and about 4″ less than the length. Cut the fabric to size.

Place the fabric wrong-side-up on the ironing board. Starting with the short sides, press the fabric over 1/2″. Repeat with the other two sides.

press in half inch

Run a line of Fabric Fuse Liquid Adhesive along the edge, about 1/4″ away from the fold.

run line of glue

Finger-press the fabric down, then press with the iron. The weight of the iron will help spread out and distribute the glue. The heat of the iron will help to set the glue faster.

Flip over the table runner. Lay the trim on top, along one of the short edges. Cut the trim to the appropriate length.
