Halloween Table Runner + Sewing Easy Curves

Halloween Table Runner

Halloween Table Runner

Special Ruler

Creating a Halloween table runner with pieced circles is easy with the help of specialty rulers. These rulers are fantastic tools for so many piecing projects, and this table runner is a great primer for using the rulers and learning the best ways to cut and sew the pieces together.

I chose to create large circles in order to have a great embroidery canvas to play with. A few pins are all you need, along with a patient hand to place and replace the concave pieces as you sew. The trick is to NOT stretch either piece during construction. These pieces get bias edges once cut, so they’re easily stretched and the smallest bit of stretch will warp the circle. Once you sew one you’ll have the hang of it.

You’ll love using this ruler as much as you love the cute Halloween-themed fabrics that come in our curated kit. The Fab-Boo-Lous fabrics from Riley Blake include glow-in-the-dark prints, perfect for pairing with our Glowy thread!

Fun Fabrics

Included in the kit is the Riley Blake Fab-Boo-Lous fabric needed to create the table runner top, a spool of white Glowy thread for embroidery, a spool of black PolyLite thread for construction, a 10-pack of Sulky rayon threads for embroidery & quilting, 8 Halloween-themed machine embroidery designs, a 1-yard package of Sulky Sticky + stabilizer, and a 6 1/2″ curved ruler set (backing, batting and binding NOT included; Fab-Boo-Lous Bats Gray┬áprint used for backing & additional Fab-Boo-Lous Scatter Black with Glow in the Dark print used for binding, shown above).

This kit has an amazing value at $69.99. Purchasing all the items separately is $108.86! I love a kit that makes it easy for me to complete an entire project without spending time (and more money) hunting everything down at the store. Don’t you?

Table Runner Details

I used Creative DRAWings X software to modify and combine some of the designs in the included collection. I also enlarged the Happy Halloween font, which you can do on the machine screen if you don’t have software.

There is plenty of thread included to create more projects using the Halloween design collection, too. And all of the instructions for the table runner are included with the kit.

      Hi Sharleen,
      Please email us at info@sulky.com so we can get you some information. I was mistaken and thought the ruler came with a postcard with this information, but the large ruler set comes with it and not the singular ruler that’s in this kit. We are happy to remedy the situation, but email is better for us to communicate with you.
      Thank you for reaching out!
