Find two long scraps of fabric. Match up the pattern and hot glue a seam. You could use fusible webbing too, but then you’d have to find your iron. (Seriously, if the wrinkles don’t come out with a spritz of water and a quick tumble in the dryer, I won’t buy the garment. I. Do. Not. Iron.)
Get pretty trim or ribbon and hot glue to the edges of the runner.
Lay it on your table and set something on it.
In my case, a pedestal bowl that is holding fabric and ribbon scraps and my two Necktie Pumpkins…
Get all warm and fuzzy inside because you had all of these materials on hand and not only did it not cost you anything, it used up some of the craft stuff that you hoard on your side of the garage and will start to make a small dent in your fabric stash, which is kind of hilarious that you even have in the first place since you don’t really sew anymore.
(Except with a glue gun.)
