Here's what I did -
1. Found my burlap fabric remnant, that I'd picked up on clearance for .59 cents.
2. Cut the fabric to the size I wanted. To ensure it would be straight on the grain, I pulled a string out and then used that as my cutting guide.
3. I then sewed 3/4 inch from the edge of the entire piece of the fabric. This is to keep the fabric from fraying too far.
4. After sewing completely around the edge of the fabric, begin by pulling the outer thread off and keep working inward until you get to the sewed line. You may need to use a needle to pull the thread away from the burlap.
5. After pulling all the threads loose around the entire burlap, it was ready to iron flat. That was it, my burlap table runner was finished! This is an easy project even if you're a beginner to sewing.
This burlap runner took less than 20 minutes to make.
I love how the burlap adds texture to the table arrangement.
It was definitely worth my time and a great money saving project!
After I finished sewing my runner, I saw a comparable table runner at Pottery Barn . I think mine is a little shorter and not quite as wide, but quite comparable. What do you think?
