Here’s how STEP 1

Cut fabric to size: de­sired width of run­ner plus length of ta­ble with an ex­tra 20cm drop for each side. Add 12cm to width and length for hems.

STEP 2

Re­fer­ring to How to make per­fect cor­ners (on pre­vi­ous pages), turn over 3cm of each side of rec­tan­gle to wrong side of fabric and press. Fold over an­other 3cm and press again. Un­fold and trim cor­ners. Fold over cor­ners to first crease and then fold over sides twice. Press and pin the cor­ners. Then, with stitch length on sewing ma­chine set to 3.5, top­stitch all sides 2.5cm from edge.
