Fringed Burlap Table Runner


Thursday I made a great Fringed Burlap Table Runner for my dining room.  I wanted a new table runner, and I still have a ton of burlap laying around from reupholstering my couch, so I decided that it would be perfect for a runner.  I still have lots of trims from my slipcover days, and I found a perfect fringe to add to the ends.  This was an amazingly easy project.  It only took about an hour to make.  

So here it is, a tutorial on How to Make A Fringed Burlap Table Runner.





1.  Measure the length of your table.  Mine was 79 inches.

2.  I added 1 1/2 inches to the length so that I would have a little room to work with at the ends.

3. Next, I measured the length of my burlap to 80 1/2 inches.

4. Then decide how wide you would like your runner to be.  I decided to make it 14 inches wide.


5. I then pulled a thread of burlap so that I would be able to cut the burlap without a mess.  Refer to my Burlap and Lace Post for directions.

6. Once the thread is pulled you have a clean open line to cut the burlap.  Cut the burlap.

7.  Next cut the burlap on the open line.



8.  I then pulled about 4 threads on that cut side, so that you have the same amount of fringed burlap on each side.

9.  Next, I sewed a zigzag stitch around the edges of the burlap.  I stitched close to the last thread at the edge of the burlap.



10. I next measured 2  15 inch pieces of fringe, so that I could fold 1/2 inch under at each end.

11.  I pinned the fringe to each end of the burlap.



12. Sew the fringe onto the burlap, and Tah Dah, you are done.



13.  I just ironed it and put it on the table.  



So super easy.  I love the way it came out.  I hope you do to.  Send me your comments.

Have a great day.
