A friend of mine moved to a new apartment a few weeks ago, so as a housewarming gift I whipped up a coordinating fall tea towel and runner.
For the tea towel I just hemmed the edges of a rectangle of fabric, added a loop, and sewed an applique leaf on the front.
The runner coordinates, with the same applique leaf. I also used the embroidery stitch on my machine to embroider a meaningful scripture verse in the corner. Sorry about the blurry picture.
And… SURPRISE! When you flip the runner over it’s a Christmas runner. Because multi-purpose is my middle name. 🙂
