I am kind of into mismatched cloth napkins. There is something so charming and casual about entertaining with a set of cute and colorful napkins that match, but don’t match. Everyone gets to use one that is unique, and it just feels special.
Anyway, I ran across a flash sale several months ago and stocked up on a bunch of cloth napkins from one of my favorite napkin sources, World Market. I was so excited about them, but soon realized I had way too many of them! I gave some away as gifts, and then thought, well, if they are great for the table, why not make a table runner out of them?
So, I did. Here is the result:
It is made using a pattern called the disappearing nine-patch. I love the asymmetrical look of this pattern, and use it a lot for runners I sell in my Etsy shop. This runner is available in my shop here.
I love finding creative inspiration in unexpected places.
