Table runner + More Sunnyside Ave projects

I recently made a new table runner for summer using my Sunnyside Ave fabric collection. It’s a quick, patchwork table runner perfect for using charm squares (5″ x 5″).

Half Square Triangle Table Runner featuring Sunnyside Ave fabrics

I used a simple Broken Dishes pattern of contrasting lights and darks half-square triangles. (You can find a Broken dishes HST tutorial here to show you how to make and lay out the blocks.) I started with 5″ x 5″ squares. The half-square triangle blocks are squared-up to 4 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ for a finished 4″ x 4″ block.

This table runner took 18 dark squares and 18 light squares, just under a 1/4 yard of fabric for binding,  and finished at 16″ x 36″.

It’s been fun to see more projects made featuring Sunnyside Ave fabrics! I love seeing what other people create with fabric I’ve designed. (It’s still a bit surreal actually.) Here are a bunch more projects featuring Sunnyside Ave fabrics, including some fun, free tutorials!

Free Apron Pattern multi sizes

Jamie of Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty mom drafted this darling, simple apron pattern.

I love that it’s a simple, classic apron AND it’s available in multiple sizes! (I think these apple prints are perfect for aprons!)

    Great projects here! I thought that Double Pocket Pouch solved a Christmas gift. Then, I found another pattern that will work for all my nieces, too. Every time I see this fabric I flashback to junior high, in as good a way as possible for junior high. 😉
