I have been wanting to make a Thanksgiving table runner for a long time, but every time I was looking for fabric it was too "Thanksgivingy". I wanted it to say Thanksgiving, but not scream Thanksgiving. Does that make sense?
Last year, while visiting my great friend Alethea, I found an awesome vintage turkey fabric! It was a little colonial for my taste, but I couldn't resist it! I decided to use a very small piece of it and use fabrics that were not specifically for Thanksgiving. This is the table runner so far:
Here is a detail of the vintage turkey fabric with some purple hand stitching details:
And the turkey star:
These flying geese are just pinned down, I haven't sewn them:
Here is another close up of some hand sticking that I have added:
I can't wait to finish this runner and get it on my dining room table for Thanksgiving!!!
