Last spring, I made a simple spring dot table runner.  It was really easy to make all thanks to HeatnBond Lite Iron-On Adhesive.

Basically, I started out by cutting thirty neutral 5″ squares:

Next, I drew 30 circles onto the paper-side of my HeatnBond Lite.  I just traced around the base of a plastic cup!

Next, I cut out sections containing 5-6 circles and paired each section with my favorite springtime fabric scraps.  Using medium heat and no steam, I fused the HeatnBond Lite to the fabric scrap, making sure the gritty-side of the HeatnBond Lite was against the “wrong” side of the fabric.

Next, I carefully cut out all of the circles and removed the paper-backing.

I centered each circle in the middle of one of the 5″ neutral squares. I fused the circle in place by holding the iron over the area 2-3 seconds.

Then, I stitched around the perimeter of the circle to keep it permanently in place. You could do this by machine or by hand!

Finally, I sewed the blocks together to make a table runner! Depending on the size of your table, there are a variety of ways to lay the blocks in rows! I made mine long and skinny.  To see the full tutorial, visit here.

Spring is coming soon and I can think of no better way to celebrate than sewing a bright and cheery table runner!
