Reversible Table Runner

Sewing still is not my comfortable area though I love to do it. I want to concentrate more on it(at least this month), and today I sat in front of my machine. I had to push myself very hard for that. Started with this  reversible table runner  which was in my to-do list from last year after the tutorial was posted.A very easy one, I don't know why I did not give it a try all this time.
The only difference from the original tutorial is the contrast fabric in the middle.I thought it would give a different look other than the printed one/ maroon alone on both sides which would have been really boring.

One side of the runner, I love this blue printed fabric, but without a contrasting colour,it doesn't look good at all.The maroon fabric is from an old dupatta of mine which was in excellent condition, but very old for the current trend. I'vent worn it in last 6 years, so I decided to use it for my sewing lessons. And with this  blue fabric,its a good combo I feel.
The reverse side of the runner.I am very happy with the whole finish. The colours too,though it doesn't go well with the current decor at home, but this is a trial for some serious sewing in future. The tutorial is well explained and an easy one especially for a beginner like me. 

I have so many WIP's going on now, mostly crochet. Will post more about that in the next post. And check the Red granny pillows, which kept me busy during my vacation at home. This was made upon an order, soon I will be making more of it for myself.
Till Next time,
Take Care
