Ten Minute Table Runner..My Way

I received this pattern free with the purchase of fabrics at LQS.I thought I would show the way I made it.
1/3 of a yard of themed fabric(wof)
1/2 of a yard of coordinating fabric (wof)

Place fabric right sides together long ways,I pinned it along so as not to shift.
I sewed mine with a 1/4 seam.Iron and pin opposite side of long side.You will have a long tube.
Flip it right side out,making sure fabric showing is even and not twisted.
Iron,and fold with center fabric facing towards you.
stitch across the open ends of tube.I did not cut off excess fabric until after I stitched,so there would be a tighter seam.
Flip the corner inside out with main fabric showing.Press.
When it is laid over table it will want to open.To fix this I stitched on buttons using a blind stitch.
Thank you to Marlene who found the original pattern for me.It is here as PDF.If you make this I would love to see them.If you would like to see my favorite one click here I have been making them for every holiday since I got this on Thursday.I should not be late on holiday gifts now...Ahem...Thank you for visiting,Amy
