Supplies that you will need-
- Burlap for the main body of the runner. Amount depends on the size of the runner. For mine, I used 1/2 yard of burlap fabric. My length was 54 inches and my width was 18 inches. Allow 1/2 inch for seam.
- Fabric for the ends of your runner. Amount depends on how many pleats you want. For mine, I used a 1/2 yard of fabric.
- Matching thread for burlap piece and for your end fabric
- Sewing machine
Next is the addition of your end fabric. I cut my piece of fabric long so that I could create several pleats. Allow for 1/2 inch for your finished edges. After pinning your pleats, use your iron to press down the pleats, this makes it a whole lot easier to sew.
Next you will attach your finished burlap piece to your finished pleated piece. I allowed for 4 inches to attach the fabric to the burlap so that my pleats would "fluff" up a bit.Once both sides are attached, press the entire runner with your iron to get any of the remaining wrinkles out. Now your ready to place the runner on your table. How easy was that!
