Burlap Table Runner and Napkins

This is another kitchen project using the fabrics I bought at Hobby Lobby inspired by my Lemon Grass Fiestaware.  I also created a Menu Board and Burlap Wreath with these same fabrics. 

Inspired by all the burlap crafts I have see lately, I designed and stitched up this table runner and matching napkins for my kitchen table.  I got a new sewing machine for Christmas which made putting this together a breeze. 

For the table runner
1.  I cut the burlap the length I wanted (if I were to do it again, I would hem the ends for a more finished edge.)

2. Cut, press and hem the floral fabric to the dimensions of the burlap.  My kitchen table is really wide, so I made my table runner wider than average width.  Keep in mind the width of your table for this step.

3.  Sew floral pieces to burlap piece.  Press down seams.

4.  I then stitched matching orange grosgrain ribbon over the seams where the burlap and fabric met, giving a much more finished appearance. 

5.  Press and put on your table!

For the napkins -
1.  Cut fabric in 17" squares. 

2.  Press a 1/4" double hem.

3.  Sew hem, press and use.

  1. Jenny -- thanks so much for the dimensions for your napkins. I've made some in the past, but wondered if there were too big/small. I think they might make good gifts too -- especially if partnered with your cute table runner! Thanks for sharing! I'm new to your blog, but intend on following it! (I'm from NC originally, but now live in WI!)
