Hannah’s Heart


Hannah’s Heart ~ table runner
Finished size – 15″ x 39″ (38cm x 99cm)

– A decorative table-runner that will add a touch of charm to any tabletop. This design features patchwork, applique, embroidery and easily made, double-sided fabric flowers. The central patchwork is embellished with small shell buttons. Create this two-toned project with a pale linen and 6 fabrics chosen in your favourite colour.

– Learn how to create double-sided fabric flowers with fused fabrics. The flowers are attached to the feature panels with central embroidery, leaving the edges free to sit up a little from the background. This adds a subtle dimensional quality to the design.

– The “Hannah’s Heart – table runner” pattern includes full sized pattern sheets and an abundance of photographic and illustrated instruction. A lovely project to keep or to create as a gift.
