Last week, with Strider out of town and the impending school year encroaching on my freedom, I was craving something crafty. I felt suffocated and needed an outlet. I wanted something for my dining room table and didn't want to spend much (shocker).
I saw a couple of these runners and used them as inspiration. I went to Walmart to get some burlap. To my surprise, they had printed burlap! Some might be over the chevron craze, but I still love it.
This burlap was 60" wide on the bolt, and I thought it was the perfect length for a runner.
The fabric is only $3.97/yd, and I bought a little less than half a yard. I showed the cutting lady how wide (how many zig zags) I wanted and she cut it precisely where I needed her to, and charged me exact. No waste. No cutting or trimming at home. So, like $1.75 for burlap. Yeah!
I wanted a trim on the ends, but because the burlap had a bold pattern, a smallish one. I saw this narrow eyelet ruffle for a little over $1/yd. I got 2 yards for making 4 stripes.
Modern and rustic. Frill and casual. Easy, and $4. Total.
The day I made this I kept watching out the window and wondering if my peach tree would break from the weight! We got a great harvest.
Don't you feel better after you make something? I sure do.
