Instructions To Make A Felt Irish Table Runner

Creating Templates

Use the diagram provided as a reference to trace and cut out shapes A-F on Bristol board. These will serve as your templates.


 Cutting Out Motifs

 Utilise the reverse side of the brown felt to capture its mottled effect. Draw around the templates to create four A shapes, twelve E shapes, and twelve F shapes in brown felt. Carefully cut out these shapes using a rotary cutter, a metal ruler, and a cutting mat.

Similarly, draw four B shapes, twelve C shapes, and twelve D shapes on the red felt, then cut them out with precision.


Assembly Of Your Felt Irish Table Runner

Refer to the provided diagram for guidance on arranging the cut-out shapes onto the large red felt rectangle to form the motif. Lift each piece carefully, taking care not to disturb the placement of other pieces.

Apply a small amount of white glue to each piece and gently secure it back in place on the felt. Keep in mind that your design may not be perfectly symmetrical, and minor variations in shape placement are expected.

Embrace these imperfections as they add character and uniqueness to your design, showcasing the handmade touch that sets it apart from machine-made creations.
