table runner..

A simple organza table runner made from a wedding net...I took this net from my sisters cupboard long time ago..she insisted me to do something out of it..I think this is the right time to sew a table runner for this festive mood to decorate our home..it is a reversible table runner.I attatched a same colour material for back..embellished  golden beads for corners..three flower applique stitched on the centre.I know most of u people are busy with sewing for the christmas decoration..


happy sewing..
