Easy Table Runners with Bias Tape

On a recent trip to Steve’s Sewing in King of Prussia, I found this great moon print fabric from the Santa Fe collection by Cotton and Steel Fabrics. I thought it would make a great table runner for Halloween! I can also use it on my altar later in the year.


I had never worked with bias tape before, but I loosely followed this tutorial from Pretty Prudent and it came together pretty quickly. I used pre-made gold double fold bias tape to finish the edges and a quilting fabric for the backing, both purchased from my local JoAnn Fabrics. Unlike the tutorial, I didn’t use batting or interfacing.


I needed a little extra guidance to figure out how to sew the corners of my bias tape, so I found this video tutorial on YouTube by Wendi Gratz. It really helped me figure out how to get a flat corner!


I also whipped up this Halloween inspired table runner with another cool fabric I picked up from Steve’s. This glow in the dark skeleton fabric is from Timeless Treasures Fabrics. I used white double fold bias tape and a floral quilting fabric on the back, both from JoAnn Fabrics.

I listed this table runner for sale here on my Etsy!
