Quilted Table Runner with Sunflower and Buttons Decorations made by Crafty Staci.
In collaboration with Totally Tutorials.
Buttons used in this tutorial – Coconut Buttons
Cut leaves from green felt:
- 1 large
- 4 medium
- 3 small
Flower centers from brown felt:
- 2 large
- 4 small
Petals from yellow or gold felt:
- 14 – 17 petals
Position one large and two small flower centers where you’d like them on the runner. Pin in place. Add the leaves on top, also pinning. Using three strands of embroidery floss, stitch down the center and across the flat end of each leaf. Remove pins.
Fold the corners of each petal in to overlap each other about 1/2” in the center. Pin.
Place flowers near the outer edge of the center, making sure the entire flat edge is inside. The number you use may vary slightly, depending on how close you put them together. Stitch in place, either by hand or machine.
Group a few buttons in the center of each and stitch with embroidery floss.
If you’re looking for a quicker version of this, you can glue the flowers and buttons in place with hot glue.
I had some tiny green buttons I had originally planned to sew onto the leaves, but didn’t like the look once I laid it out, so instead I added a little monogram in one corner.
