Christmas Tree Runner

So, I´ve been wanting to sew with tulle, or netting if you prefer for quite a while, and since  Christmas is here, I thought it might be a good time to join the 2, Christmas and tulle.

I saw this cute table runner from Addy Lou Creates here, so I made a version of that pattern,  3 different fabrics for each tree.

Then I added the tulle on top, this is a very fine tulle with fine gold glitter.20191026_151604

Free motioned crazy patterns on top of each section of the trees and stippled the background.

I don´t know quite what I was thinking when I decided to add the stripes in the middle if I had a redo, I wouldn’t do that at all, but oh well, now it´s done. I  found that the tulle does mute the colours of the fabric quite a bit, but is actually far easier to work with than I expected.

So now it´s Christmas time, and I have a new table runner to display 🙂

Wishing all a blessed happy Christmas!

    Looks awesome Alice! Even the stripes in the middle looks good. It breaks the pattern if you know what I mean (it’s not monotonous), & looks nice on the table with an ornament. You’re quite crafty, my friend! Blessings at Christmas! 🙏❤️❣️
