I had the rare luxury of a day off work today and decided to cast my mind to Christmas. Christmas?!! It’s only June!
Several months ago I bought some wonderful fabric by Sheri McCully for Riley Blake called Alpine Wonderland, a great Christmas design. Since then I’ve been adding to my stash with other fabrics that matched with the idea of making a mantle piece runner for Christmas.
I originally saw on Pinterest a runner that had overlapping banner flags of differing lengths and fell in love with the design. I had no idea how to construct it and spent quite a bit of time in the garden pondering how I was going to make it (well it was sunny!).
I got there in the end and even managed to make it double sided, in case I fancy a change one year.
