How to Make a Ruffled Table Runner

I’m celebrating the month of May and all that it brings to each of us, with a new free pattern from Bunny Hill!  I’ll show you how easy it is to make a reversible table runner with a beautiful ruffle on each end.  Simplicity is what I’ve named the pattern because it really is simplicity at its best.  Just think of all the fabrics you can use to make this, season after season!  I’ve used Brenda Riddle’s gorgeous floral and check linen and I love the way it turned out.

With floral linen on one side, and a check linen on the other, I’ll have both a formal look and a more casual look when I need it.  Because the linen is a bit heavier than cotton, I used a pearl cotton to gather the ruffle.  My free pattern includes directions for gathering with pearl cotton, or a heavy-duty thread.  Just click on the link below for the free pattern!

Of course I’ve made up some table runner kits using Brenda’s linen.  I couldn’t resist!  You’ll find them on our website!
