The Big Book of Table ToppersThe Big Book of Table Toppers
Compiled by Karen M. Burns

It’s the 13th book in our “Big Book” series—and everyone who owns it is going to feel lucky! Choose from 56 topper projects (only 50 cents per pattern) to create for tables, walls, chairs, gifts . . . they’re so quick and fun and so easy to display. The book is divided into two sections—toppers and runners—and choices for sizes, styles, and techniques are through the roof. And then there’s the name-drop designer power! All of your favorites: Kim Diehl, Country Threads, Jo Morton, Me and My Sister Designs, Amy Ellis, and many more. Even better? Each design is featured in beautiful styled photography, a perk that’ll inspire you to sew, display, and decorate to your heart’s content.

Follow us on Facebook and Instagram for more sneak peeks from the book; we’re counting down the days until the book’s release, starting today!
