Pin It I don't know how to sew. I really really don't. I mean, I can sew a straight line but when it comes to a premeditated curved line, you are looking at the wrong person. But I'm slowly trying to learn, I promise...
I've seen so many people around the web decorating for the fall season that I think I got this bug too. I went to Hancock Fabrics to get some fabric for new pillows (yes, I can sew pillows....Straight lines, right :) I actually went to find some burlap (I got this bug too!) but they were sold out of the good stuff. But as I was wandering around, I found some really pretty leftover linen-looking fabric for $5/ yard. It's so awesome that I got 2 yards for multiple little projects around the house. And then I noticed this really cute fall fabric that I just couldn't pass by:
So I decided to make a very simple table runner for my level of sewing (nothing like your amazing table runners, Carla :). I just cut one "linen" stripe and two "pumpkin" ones and sew it all together. But it looked too plain, so I added some "applications" from cut-up fabric:
And another picture:
I just used some Elmer's fabric spray adhesive to attach them:
Aren't these pumpkins pretty?
I don't have any other fall decor on the table, so some flowers from last summer will work for now. Or the first and only cantaloupe from our garden:
Have you started decorating for fall yet?
I will share this post with these fun parties:
