This table runner ended up being a lot more plain Jane than I had originally intended. I already posted a picture of my first failed attempt. Well, here's a picture of my second:
This runner was so easy that it hardly needs a step-by-step guide to explain, but I took the pictures so I'm gonna post 'em anyway.
(Here's the short version if you're crunched for time: 1. Cut a strip of burlap and hem it. 2. Put it on your table.)
I made a pattern out of poster board to trace onto my burlap. Our table is a 42" square and the runner is about 18" wide and 55" long.
I lined up the the poster board with the lines I drew and folded down the edges of the burlap and ironed them so my hem would be nice a straight.
All joking aside, I like the way my runner turned out even though it's not original or fancy. I like the neutral color and I like the texture of the burlap. Now I just need to find some fabric to make some placemats...maybe I'll get a little facy with those.
I ALMOST FORGOT! I used a yard and a half of burlap which cost a whopping $4.39 and I have some left over. Way cheaper than this guy.
