Burlap Table Runner



I picked up a remnant of burlap (I really like fabric remnants, if you can't tell) and decided to make a burlap table runner. I have been putting it off for a while because I was nervous about tackling burlap and thought it would be hard to work with. Turns out that its very easy to work with and sews up nicely. After I sewed the basic runner I painted the words "give thanks" on the runner in brown craft paint. I used chalk to sketch out the words first and then free hand painted using an art brush. In the photos below the runner isn't laying flay because of the foam board I have under the "give thanks" while it was drying. Paired up with my jute pumpkins I think it makes a nice holiday table!
