Summer Craft Kick-Off: Easy Bandanna Table Runner

by Jennie Canzoneri


Photo from lifestyle.msn.com
It's nearly summer, and although I'm likely to whine about the heat in Texas for the next six months, the hottest season of the year definitely has its perks. The bright and cheery summer craft ideas are one of them.

I really, really love this easy bandanna table runner I recently saw in MSN's lifestyle section.

You can pick up cheap and bright bandannas at most craft stores (my local favorite is Hobby Lobby). Lay them out side by side and stitch together. Simple as that!

You can also add a fabric backing for more padding if you need it, but you may not if you'll only use it for summer parties or outdoor dining.

That is a super cute table runner!  LOVE IT! 

I'm hoping to get some stitching and quilting in this summer, but life is crazy so who knows...

I have to prep for the fundraiser I'm doing for CCA Kids in Sept. I am donating a portion of the profit of all my hats sold in Sept to ccakids.org and need to get a small stockpile of beanies and cute hats made up.

(Yes, I'm trying to get the word out about it, lol)

I need to make decorations for my house still. Teach my Mom how to loom knit. Keep working on water color painting. I guess whatever entertains me!

 With the kids we are currently working on writing childrens books and illustrating them with legos. They are in the story writing process right now!

Ok I love love love that table runner. Now I have to make one! :-) 

I have a few things planned. I will be knitting a few things. I will be making an  electric old chandaler into a real candle one & revamping it. I will be repainting a wooden bench. & what ever other crafts that come up. I do want to do some sewing too!

I have been already crafting and did a few things like this below...


I also made some simple wall art with toilte paper tubes glued down on canvas then spray painted!
