spring flower table runner

Now that I have allowed fusible webbing into my sewing life, I really can just throw the pins out- never liked them anyway. Nothing ever stayed in position and I always pricked my finger. I hate pricking my finger so much that I'd rather have blood drawn from my veins any day over having my finger pricked. But, Wonder Under, my fusible webbing of choice, helped me make this pretty appliqued table runner lickety split- sans blood, sweat, or tears.


I fused the "wonder under" to the back of some fabric, drew flowers on the paper side of the "wonder under", cut them out, then pressed them onto my linen with a hot iron. From there, sewing with my feed dog down, I was able to free motion scribble around the edge of the fabric without the flower annoyingly changing position. It was fun, fast, and I am in love with the results. I'm going to make a bunch of these for Twist.
