– Fusible bonding tape
– Ribbon (different colors and widths)
– 2-3 cotton kitchen towels (I only needed two, since my table is not very big)
First, I ironed the fusible tape between the edges of the two towels. I used about a 3/4 inch overlap of fabric. Using more fusible tape, I attached a wide ribbon to cover over the seam. I cut the fusible tape and ribbon about 2 inches longer than the width of the towels and just ironed the ends of both down in the back.
Using different pink and green ribbon and more fusible tape, I worked my way out from the center of the towels to create a striped pattern. I measured and did my best to make each side match.
In hindsight, I probably should’ve washed the towel prior to putting the runner together. I’m worried it will shrink and pull at the ribbon if I wash it. Oops. I may just gently spot clean it if it gets dirty. Or for two bucks, I can make a new one next year!
