Measure and Cut Fabric
First, measure the length, width and thickness of the table. Based on these dimensions, pick up the appropriate yardage of fabric to cover the table length-wise, also taking into consideration an additional 32 inches of length to account for proper overhang (16 inches on each side of the runner). Divide the width of the table by three, then refer to this measurement as the proper width for the runner. Next, cut fabric to size with fabric scissors.
Measure and Cut Binding Tape
To give the runner a crisp, tailored touch, add binding tape along the edges to create a border. First, measure two strips of binding tape to the width of the runner and two strips to the length of the runner, then cut the edges at a 45-degree angle with fabric scissors, creating mitered corners.
Attach Binding Tape
Once all four strips of binding tape are cut to size and mitered, add iron-on adhesive tape between each strip of tape and the edges of the runner itself. Next, fuse the binding tape to the edges of the runner with an iron.
