Thanksgiving is around the corner and I wanted a rustic table setting this year. I decided to make this very simple burlap table runner.
All I did was measure out the length of the runner by placing the fabric on the table and cutting it to size, adding approximately 1/4 inch for seam allowance on all sides.
Then, I hemmed the two long sides of the runner by just rolling over the edge with my sewing machine.
On the two shorter ends, I wanted a little fray so I pulled some of the threads out to give it the look I wanted.
I stitched a straight line along that frayed edge so that it doesn't continue to fray.
Voila! A very simple runner that adds a little color to my boring table.
It's simple and me.
I had extra burlap left so I decided that I would make the kids table a burlap table cloth.
I used my leftover outdoor paisley fabric for my runner.
I bought these little turkey placemats at Pottery barn several years ago even before E. was born.
I decided to replace the little pumpkins with some of kids lego creations they have made through out the year. I love incorporating a little bit of them into the decor. It is their table after all.
