I feel so lucky to be chosen to participate once again using this fabulous line of fabrics. Sew Mama Sew put together another challenge, and Oakshott fabrics sent 6 challengers their Lakes fat eighths collection, and asked us to make table linens with them.
I chose to make a table runner for our 8′ long dining table!
It is so long that is was tricky to get the whole thing photographed at once!
I added a pocket at each end (by folding down one corner and then halfway up again, and sewing down in place) to hold whatever we need to put in them! Napkins, silverware, dinner party questions (oh yes, we have done that to our guests), etc.
The colors in this collection are beautiful, and have that iridescent sheen that we love Oakshott fabrics for.
I kept the pattern fairly simple so that you can really see all the incredible colors and their subtle differences.
I always feel so decadent sewing with these fabrics. They remind me of jewels.
Look at that weave!
The dark rains have begun here (I live in WA state), so I couldn’t photograph this inside, but it fits right in with our color scheme in the dining room, perfectly.
Big Thanks to Sew Mama Sew and Oakshott fabrics!
