The sun is out today!! Can I get an amen!!
It's amazing what a little sunshine can do for the spirit.
I hope that you are all having a great Thursday today!
I have seen so many tutorials in the blogosphere making a
table runner with a burlap ruffle.
I absolutely love it and decided to give it a shot.
I used a runner that I had picked up at PB outlet several months
back and it just wasn't doing anything for me on my
I am a frugal girl so I wanted to use what I had on hand.
It worked and I am loving it now!!
I also thought this would look really cute using a dropcloth as
a table runner and making a ruffle using burlap..I'm sure someone
has already thought of that..I'm a little slower than some.
Have you seen the darling bedskirt made out of a dropcloth over at
Restoration House (it's in my sidebar)?? If you haven't you must go check it out!
Let's get started..
I cut 2 burlap pieces for the ruffles
Make sure to cut them a little longer to allow
One boring linen table runner
Turned under and pinned the edges
Pinned the burlap piece to the runner
I gathered up small sections and pinned them individually
Does that make sense??
I pinned it all on and sewed the whole thing at once
It might be easier to sew the edges and then
add the ruffle to the runner.
I am to impatient for that...sorry!
Ta-dah!! I love it!
A little less boring on the table..I think!
Have a blessed day my friends!!
A little random picture of myself on my way out the
door to go thrifting. Do you have a hat day...those are my days to
not wash my hair and do nothing with it..lazy I know!
