  1. Measure the width of your table and add 10" on each side (20" total + width of your table). We cut two pieces 15" wide x 66" length.
  2. Fold over fabric edges 3/8" twice along all edges and press.
  3. Sew at 1/4" all around.
  4. Press.
  5. Repeat steps 2, 3, and 4 with the second Table Runner.

The Napkin Set

  1. Cut 6 rectangles along the checks in the size of your choice (we made ours 18" x 20").
  2. For each napkin, starting on one side, fully pull out the first thread. If needed, you can use the help of a pin.
  3. Then pull out threads for about 1/4" (you can pull out several threads at a time)
  4. Repeat steps 2-3 on every side of each napkin

  1. Cut straight edges to remove the selvages.
  2. Starting on one of the shorter sides, fully pull out the first thread. If needed, you can use the help of a pin.
  3. Then pull threads out for about 2" ( you can pull out several threads at a time) or until you reach the desired fringe length.
  4. Repeat steps 2 & 3 on the other side
  5. For the longer side, pull out threads using the same technique as steps 2 & 3 for about 3/4".
