  • 2
    Runner: Measure and cut a desired length of Kelly felt (you may need more than one package, depending on the length of your runner). For runner, place one long White strip of felt vertically across center. Measure and mark every 7 inch from center and line lightly with chalk. Cut several white strips into 3-1/2 inch lengths then cut in half lengthwise. Position all pieces in place pressing long strips along chalk lines. Place the shorter strips halfway between the longer ones. Use White chalk to lightly draw numbers next to each felt line as shown. Test flow of White fabric paint on paper towel using an even pressure on bottle for a smooth line. Trace over chalked numbers with paint. Let dry. A damp paper towel can be used to wipe off chalk lines if needed.

    Placemats: To create placemats, measure and cut desired number of 11 inch x 16 inch pieces (you may need more than one package, depending on number of placemats being made). Measure and cut 3/4 inch wide strips along entire length of White felt sheet. Position all pieces in place as shown in photo, then apply a thin even coat of glue to back of each, and then press in place.
