Friday night is family movie night at our house and the movie was “Contagion”. Saturday morning I woke up with a slight sore throat and I didn’t feel particularly energetic. Of course my husband thought it was all in my head. Mmmmm…. I had planned on painting my foyer. That would involve climbing up and down a ladder – not happening. Plus it was raining.
So I decided to do an easy sewing project. I’ve been wanting a new table runner and I have lots of burlap & fabric so I decided on a burlap and gingham tablerunner.
Let me tell you, I think there are about a bajillion table runner tutorials out there! Here’s another one………………..Not really!
This is the tutorial I used. I did have to hem my ruffle and stitch the sides of my burlap but basically followed her very good directions.
I’d never made a ruffle before so I learned something new making this.
It’s all just straight line sewing and I’m sure you could use Stitch Witchery and make it without sewing.
It was very easy to make! I think it looks very country cottage style with the addition of the gingham.
By the way, I was fine by Sunday morning !
