Stitched Table Runner

Adding simple cross stitches with metallic threads is a fast and easy way to step-up a plain design. We found this table runner at a discount store—the squares in the fabric pattern were crying out for some x's in bright, cheerful colors. It's no-sew easy, and can be done while you watch tv one evening. We used threads from a Bag O'Bits (our leftover thread ends, extras from kits, etc) so it's a recycling, upcycling project.

Materials needed:

  • purchased table runner
  • Kreinik Bag O'Bits
  • sharp needle with a large eye (like a Crewel needle)

Instructions:
Use the threads from the Bag O'Bits, and make a large cross stitch randomly on the purchased table runner. Since the back of the runner won't be showing, it's okay to tie the thread ends in knots—just try to keep them small so the table runner won't be bumpy.

Kreinik threads are hand and machine washable. Tumble dry on low. Do not iron directly onto the metallic; use a press cloth.
