Home Linens Inspiration...

Do you like making your own table runners, place mats, and napkin?  I like making the items.  They are mostly easy to make.  You can make them in the colors and style that you want.  Let's not forget that you can size the items for your own table.

Here's a nice table runner example.  It is bright.  The finished size is 14" x 90".  This would equate to about 2 5/8 yards of fabric if you didn't want a seam somewhere.  I don't think you need a pattern for this just a good ruler and a place to cut.  The price tag is $98.00.  If you're interested in more detail, go to Neiman Marcus and search for Chartreuse Medallion Table Runner.

There seem to be a lot of the quilted placemats available.  This is a great way to practice machine quilting or even play with some of the special stitches on you machine.  If you decide to look at the detail, you will see that there are some special machine stitches used in the sample above.  This particular placemat is made from velvet and the finished size is 19" x 13".  The price tag is four placemats for $100.00.  To see the detail, use the Neiman Marcus link above and search for Juliet Placemats & Windsor Napkins by Pom Pom at Home. 

Hope your inspired to create some linens of your own.

Happy Stitching!
