Remember my sweet little burlap bunny table runner from Monday’s Easter tablescapes post?
I am particular about straight lines, and burlap can be a little pesky, so a few years ago I found and incredible tutorial by Craftaholics Anonymous on cutting burlap straight and use it each time I work with burlap! It is a major time saver!
Iron your burlap! This will make hemming a lot easier!
Next, decide if you will sew the hems or use a no-sew method! Unfortunately, I was a very bad blogger and did not take photos of this part! For a sewing method, you will press your seam allowance over and then fold under and press again. Then simply stitch with sewing machine. The Thrifty Abode shows you a very similar method. If you prefer a no-sew method, simply press down your seam allowance and then apply therma-bond,steam-a-seam,stitch witchery, or other product as per manufacturers instructions! Under The Table and Dreaming has a fabulous tutorial on this method using a different fabric.
Here are close ups of my seams…

Very cute as is all you ladies do! Love the simple organic nature of the piece!
Could anyone tell me where I can buy burlap 20″ x 15′ for a Christmas project for my daughter her table is 113″ long. I would like to make a runner with no visible seams

Thanks for sharing how you made that adorable stenciled table runner, Bonnie. I have a friend who fainted when the embroidery shop told how much it would be do put stitched monograms on runners at her daughter’s wedding reception…I think you have provided a good alternative for a monogram.
I have got to do this! What an awesome idea! And burlap is my friend, so I need to add some stenciling to it. 🙂 Thanks for sharing!
SImple, yet fabulous!! love it 🙂
