This Mid2Mod post about Marimekko reminded me that I haven’t posted photos of the Marimekko table runner my mom, who visited me in March, sewed for me. She purchased a Marimekko remnant for placemats or an apron – she just knew I liked the pattern. Instead, I asked her to make a small table runner I could use in lieu of placemats that would also protect the centre of the table from the heat of a casserole dish, etc. Anyone with teak knows you have to be careful placing hot or damp things on the wood.
|In true Dans le Townhouse fashion, I haven’t ironed the runner or set the
table “properly” – this is exactly how we use it. No staging here!
She even made two matching cloth napkins, plus a spare – which I thought was genius.
To make the remnant stretch (although we would have done this anyway, because Marimekko fabric can be pricey) she used a white felted cotton lining. This created a bit of padding, too.
Perfect for dinner for two!
