You should have 16 triangles of fabric 1 in total.

2. Cut two squares from the wreath print (Fabric 2), again for these you will need to cut in half at a 45 degree angle and cut in half again. You should have 8 triangles in total.

3. Cut two squares from the blue holly print (Fabric 5), again for these you will need to cut in half at a 45 degree angle and cut in half again. You should have 8 triangles in total.

13. Finally, cut out around the table runner front onto the backing fabric. A plain cotton works well for this. Sew right sides together, leaving a gap so that you can turn it through. Before turning, snip the corners back so they create a sharp edge. Turn through and press. Sew up the gap by hand, give it one final press and your table runner is finished.
