Ruffles and Burlap

As you know, I have been getting busy for a craft show with some friends this last weekend.  One of the things that I really wanted to make, but just didn't get to was a burlap table runner.  So one hour before set up, I set out to make a burlap table runner with ruffles.  This turned out to be my absolute favorite item that I made, and of course it sold!  I thought I would share this beauty!It was 17 inches X 55 inches long.  It went the whole length of my table and had some hanging over.

 I put ruffles on each end of the runner.  The burlap was from a coffee sack and the ruffle from the edge of the material I used to back a quilt a few years back.  It was already cut and folded in half, so it was perfect for this project.
 I measured it out to have this stripe down the middle of the runner.  It was down the middle of the sack.
I love the fact that it even had some markings from use.  Give sit more character.

I am going to have to make some more of these for sure...what do you think?  Make sure to check out some of the blogs in the right column that I love to link up to.
