    We are looking for trim to put on placemats. Also maybe rick-rack or piping or braid.

    Try making prairie points. It will always match and you can make them pretty small if needed.

    Do you live a long distance from any fabric stores?

    I tend to forget that some people don't have the luxury of several stores within "easy reach"

    If you have washed/shrunk your fabric before cutting/sewing it, you should consider washing/shrinking your trims before applying them. Some of them also shrink.

    My thoughts also......most fabric stores carry various types of trim/laces.

    We are needing trim to put on tablerunners. We have a patternwhere you use 1/3 yard 45" and 1/2 yard 45" make a tube turn fold right sides together sew across the ends turn out for points.and we want some kind of braid or trim to sew in the seams yo dress it up. If you don't understand my instructions and want to know how to make one I will try to send you a picture as you can make one in 30 minutes or less.

    I don't get what you are doing.

    Bearisgrey it is a very basic table runner . The bottom fabric is bigger then the top ( wider ) sew the side seams together , fold in half press. So part of the bottom fabric now becomes the top . Sew the ends and fold up to the top , they become points . She wants the trim for the top ends that you sewed and folded over .

    I don't know how well you can see it but that is what my niece made for her first sewing : http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-65504-1.htm
