We’re still going strong with the patriotic summer makeovers–there are just so many great ones to choose from! Today’s rescue comes from Jamie at Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom, who realized recently that with company coming over she probably ought to change out her Easter decor “to something more appropriate for Summer and the upcoming holidays.” Some leftover bandannas from a previous project fit the bill!
Jamie took three bandannas from her leftovers, cut them “into 4 equal pieces and laid them out into a pleasing pattern.” Once arranged, she used hem tape and a hot iron to assemble her table runner–beginning with rows of two, then “hemming” those rows together. Then Jamie did a final 1/2 inch hem of the outer sides to even everything up. She chose to make a narrow runner because, as she says, “my kids are messy.” (Smart thinking.) This quick project packs a great visual punch!
