I have heard this alot this week....it is a woman's perogative to change her mine!

Well.....you all know that I am giving this away over at Inch worm Fabrics.



What I failed to tell you was that I put insul brite on the inside instead of batting. Which means you can put anything hot or cold on it and it won't affect the surface of your table. I loved sewing with this insul brite and it lays so flat. I almost used the last of my insul brite. A friend ordered us both some....anyways....making a short story long....

I LOVE this table runner so I decided to take this:


and do this?



to make more of these!! I think I can get two long ones and a smaller one...yepeeee
Did I say how much I love my table runner.....and I have a few friends that need cheering up too...so this will be perfect. Unfortunately, this was all I was able to do last night......

Great idea. I've used insul-brite for hot pads, but had never thought about it for a table runner. Thanks for sharing this!

Great idea to use insul-bright inside it. I may steal that idea.

I love using insul-bright. I used it a lot last year and I still have some left. Great table runner.

I used insulbrite on a topper made with teapot fabric but I've not seen that for awhile now....hmmmmm...wonder where that went???? Better look for it....

Susan said...

Using the insul brite batting in a table runner is a FANTASTIC idea! I'm going to use it in my table runners from now on. Thanks for sharing your idea!

How clever of you to use the insulated batting! I just recently discovered it when making tea cozies and it is fabulous! One pot can stay hot for a really long time!

How pretty!! I've never heard of insul-bright but I'll have to look for it. What a great idea for a table runner instead of batting.
