Modern table runner – Dress up a mirror for Halloween, Christmas or a nice party. If your table runner is too nice to just put on the table, turn it into a mirror belt and pick it up on the wall where everyone will see it. Runners are perfect size and shape for a drapery. Home furnishings and import stores make interesting runners for each holiday, in colors that match most decors.

Measure the top of the mirror. Divide this measurement by two and add 1/2 inch. Place modern table runner on flat surfaces and mark the center of a long side with a pin. Measure the distance you counted along the edge of each side of the pin. Mark both of these points with a pin. Mark the center of the other side with a needle. Subtract 3 inches from the measurement used on the other side. Measure the new distance on each side of the tab on this edge of the runner. Mark these points with pins.
Draw a line of scratch chalk from the pins on one side to the pins on the corresponding side. Use a measure to see the lines are straight. Set a sewing machine to sew a straight stitch with long stitch length. Sew along the lines. Drag the bobbin wires to collect the modern table runner until the chalk lines are one third the original width of the runner. Adjust the wrinkles evenly. Set the machine to sew a regular stitch length and sew along the entire stitch to hold the wrinkles in place.
