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!

Hopefully you’ve been keeping up with these little patterns.  If you’re not planing on making them right away, make sure that you print off the patterns each month to save for the future.

If you missed the sneak peek in my newsletter yesterday, here’s a picture of what’s coming from Bunny Hill… Kindred Spirits  is in the studio and we’re working like crazy to get every thing made and patterns done.

There’s nothing like a new grandchild to make you feel good. It’s such a wondrous event.  Maya, my newest granddaughter, arrived on February 8th weighing in around 9 lbs. She’s Lily’s little sister. Lily has held her, kissed her and probably wondered in that head of hers, if she’s going to be going home sometime soon.  But as time passes they will get to know each other well, and life will be about bonding, sister fights, sharing and all the good things that we learn when a sibling comes along.

I’ll have to be content to view pictures for a few more months, as I wait for them to travel from Germany to the US for Maya’s first visit at the end of April.  I’ll take care to hug and love Lily too, as I hold my newest Granddaughter for the very first time.  I can hardly wait!
