How to make the Christmas Stockings table runner tutorial

I know I have mentioned this many, many times but I really love being a ambassador for Island Batik. Their fabrics are beautiful and I never seem to get tired of working with them!

I couldn’t resist sharing a photo of Mr. Mickey sitting on the couch by the table runner next to my Wonky Christmas Tree pillow.

I didn’t do any quilting on the stockings as I couldn’t decide what I wanted to do. In the end, I just left the stockings plain.

Batiks were used to make this table runner but you could use any fabrics that you have in your stash that make you think of Christmas and stockings.
