Felt Table Runners
Various colors of felt
This Christmas craft makes a lovely felt table runner. The first thing you need to do is measure your table to make your runner a suitable length. Cut your felt to suit the length you would like and make it around 30cm's wide. If you have a wider table it might like more balanced if you make the runner wider too. Sew a 1 cm hem all the way around the cloth and cut the corners of each end to give it a pointed finish. For the Christmas shapes use felt scraps to make a holiday character on each end. Secure with a few dabs of glue and then embroidery around the edges for a detailed finish. For Christmas patterns, use children's coloring in books or draw around Christmas cookie cutters for a simple pattern.
