Burlap & Lace Table Runner


Burlap and Lace Table Runner ~ How to stop Burlap fraying and DIY tutorial making this Table Runner #Burlap #TableRunner www.withablast.net

Have you ever started with something, anything .. a recipe, a craft or a decor piece thinking that this would be so quick and easy ?  Only to find yourself changing, adding and whatever else in the end.

Well, that's what happened with this Table Runner - my first thought was to make a simple frayed Burlap Runner with a wide Lace ribbon in the center.

No, that wasn't enough - I then had to add a hand stitched wool border all around.

The end - NO  !  I then stitched every single hole to make it a bit stronger. The short sides were left the way I bought the Burlap {already sealed} So, it was the two long sides which I hand stitched, using pieces of Burlap strings.

Above you can see the way I stitched together 3 strands of Burlap strings

After I was done with the stitching, I added some Fabric Glue over the stitched parts on the bottom/back part of the Runner

And used a popsicle stick to smear/rub it all over to cover all - the Fabric Glue I used, dries clear, so no one will notice

I took so long with the stitching and when I was finally done, I totally forgot to iron the Burlap Runner before putting it in place on the Buffet Table in the Dining Room !

This table is, for now, {until we move it during the next week} in a dark corner in the Dining Room, hence this bad photo - seems silly, because it is right beside a large window, but that's just a real bad spot for photos.
