Getting ready for Halloween this year I prepared these pumpkin table runners / placemats.
Here's how they're made:
Then you place the batting on the table, the backing on top of it right side up and the top fabric last right side facing down.
Clip or pin together and sew all the way around the pumpkin starting at the top and leaving a big enough space for the stem.
Clean the edges leaving a 1/4-inch seam allowance. Then turn the runner right side out through the opening for the stem. Now the fabric and backing should be on the outside with the backing hidden between the two layers.
The pumpkin structure is created with quilting.
If you want a simple pumpkin you're done.
Otherwise you can personalize your Halloween table runner or placemat with embroidery.
Here are the two runners together on the table:
