Instead of making the 2nd pair of curtains to go in my kitchen like I should have today, I spent it instead making a runner for my table. Awhile ago I purchased this awesome RED Cuisinart colander. I thought it would make a perfect centerpiece for my kitchen table...if only I had a cute runner to go underneath! ;)
So, after a couple hours, I came out of my sewing room with this:
It's definitely bright and fun! Not sure if I 100% love it--the green and orange are a bit overpowering, but it's still cute! I would love to make a red and aqua one now to match the kitchen a bit more. It was soo easy to make too, and I am not a quilter! I bascially followed this tutorial, and it really went together very fast. Fabrics were just from my stash--I just pulled out a bunch of bright colors and went with it.
And with the colander! Pretty huh? It needs a little something in the colander, I'm just not sure what yet--was thinking maybe some fake lemons? What do you think?
