My sister gave me these plates a couple years ago and when I pulled them out and put them on my newly made table runner, I realized how well they coordinated!
The table runner is made from two dish towels. A couple of years ago after Christmas my mom bought bought these towel sets for future gifts. I raved about the look and ended up getting a set last year! Then this year when I was talking about sewing them together to make a table runner, she said she had another set of towels. I took the two white towels, butted the seams together and sewed a red grosgrain ribbon over them and hung up the two red towels!
