    Ok, had to try a table runner.
    I figured I wouldn't bind it, just try and do the pillowcase thing to it.
    It was actually pretty easy, considering I thought it was going to be a pain in the butt, but it wasn't.
    It's a bit wonky, but not bad for my first one. :)

    It looks great! I'm glad it went together easy. I have that pattern bookmarked too.

    That is very pretty. It doesn't look wonky at all.

    You put the top and backing facing each other, then the batting on top of that. Sew around it leaving an opening so you can pull it all right side out.
    It works great on quilts too! I did it for the 2 lap quilts I made for wedding gifts. You don't have to put a binding on it after you do that. All I do after I pull it all right side out is smooth it all down evenly, then sew around the outside of it. When I sew it together all sandwiched, I use a 3/8th inch seam, then when it's all right side out, I sew a 1/4 inch around the entire thing.

    Thanks, but it is. It really doesn't lay flat. Had a little "bump" on the back of it that I didn't notice when I pinned it all together. :(

    LOL Pam
    Her hair isn't wonky. It's just that the "water spout" is a bit sideways. ;)
