I started by sewing my table runner. All I did was cut out my fabric using an old table runner to measure. Then I just hemmed the edges so it wouldn’t fray when washed. Next came the ruffle. Cut your fabric for the ruffle about 4 inches wide and twice the length of the end of your runner. You can do it with less but the ruffle won’t be as full.
Set your sewing machine at the longest stitch you have. The higher the number the longer the stitch. Mine is a 4.
When you have scrunched all of your fabric line it up on your runner and spread out the ruffle to your liking. Pin the ruffle in place and sew straight over the line you just sewed, only this time using back stitching.
