October 16, 2010

BURLAP TABLE RUNNERS

Sissie at Sissie's Shabby Cottage  inspired me to make these burlap table runners this past spring.  She is an amazing seamstress.....me, on the other hand..... KIND OF.....SOMETIMES...... likes to sew with my rudimentary knowledge of it.
Last night I stayed awake in bed almost the entire night dreaming of making some gorgeous RUFFLED BURLAP BAGS.....today I attempted to execute my idea...hours later (and a very sore back) I've decided that I don't think I REALLY LIKE SEWING????!!!!!!----LOL!!!!!

Have a wonderful weekend my friends!

Your runners are beautiful! I love how you added the white ruffle too....nice touch! Of course, displaying them on the ladder was a wonderful idea and your photos are amazing.

Thanks for the mention but, shucks, I ain't all that good! LOL!

Believe me I have my share of mistakes and bleeding fingers!

Great job.

hugs

Hi Janis, those are just beautiful! I have tried to sew too, Jack bought me a wonderful sewing machine for my birthday last year... and I decided I don't like to sew either!!! My mama was a beautiful seamstress, guess I just didn't inherit that quality from her... xoxo Julie Marie

So pretty...why do we all love burlap sooooo much??? I hope to come visit you at the barn sale!

I hear Elinor is sewing up a storm...you and she need to get together for an all nighter.

Then you might "like" sewing. Trust me she and I have done it and it is a hoot.

So funny! I went to the local fruit/ veggie market where they sell all kinds of garden stuff also. They had burlap sold by the yard.I thought what could I do with it? A banner I thought. Great idea! Hugs, Liz

It is beautiful! You did a good job!
Sounds like me; I know how to sew just enough to tempt me to try something ~ either I some how get it right or really mess it up.

Ok, now I want to make a cute valance for my laundry room similar with the burlap and ruffle. Thanks for the ideas and sharing. Tiff

Allison said...

I think you did a great job! It's beautiful with the ruffle. You've displayed it so nicely, too, and your photo is gorgeous, as always. I've been considering taking up sewing.....We'll see! I admire you for jumping in and giving it a try. You did an outstanding job.

I am just finding your blog. (I'm at work-shhhhh). I don't know how I missed it before. I love this place and you can bet your boots that you are stuck with me now. If THAT is the burlap runner you made I'd say you did a wonderful job of it! Diana

Candylei said...

They are adorable. The mix of feminine ruffles with the course-weave burlap. A perfect marriage!
Hope your back is better by tomorrow.

Two of my favorite things..burlap and ruffles. The runner is beautiful! I understand the sewing thing completely. The only things I can manage to sew are pillows. Just don't look at them too closely.
