No-Sew Chevron Table Runner

Today we’re sharing an easy way to perk up a plain white tablecloth. This simple DIY no-sew table runner is made from the laminated chevron fabric from Riley Blake.

Are you familiar with Riley Blake fabrics? Not only do they offer a variety of fun chevron prints–laminated or not, they also have the BEST designs for girl and BOY FABRIC! If you’re a sewing Mom, Nana or Favorite Auntie to a little boy, you know finding cool BOY fabric is nearly impossible. So let me just point out my current favorite: these Pirate Ship and Pirate Skull prints. They’re the perfect combination of awesomely tough and cute. Back to the tutorial…

Order enough yardage to cover the length of your desired table. Depending on the fabric width, you may be able to cut the fabric in half lengthwise, yielding two separate runners. Carefully trim off the selvage (raw, unlaminated edge). We used a rotary cutter and straight edge, but this can also be done simply with fabric scissors.

  1. What a fab idea to use laminated fabric, didn’t realise it didn’t fray so that’s an added bonus as my sewing skills aren’t that great! Love the chevrons!
