Let It Snow Table Runner

For Christmas this year, I made my grandma and mother-in-law a table runner. Since they turned out so adorable, I think I need one for myself...

-(2) burlap pieces cut to 16" x 48"
-white 1/2" pom pom trim
-white paint

First thing you want to do is stencil on with white paint your design onto the burlap.

Steps Not Pictured:
1. Sew white pom pom trim onto the two ends of one of the pieces of burlap.
2. With right sides together, sew the front and back together. Leave a hole at the bottom so you can turn it right side out.
3. Iron the table runner so it lays flat.
4. Sew a cute stitch around the runner. This will close up the hole. I used the edge of the foot as my guide.

Display for all to see.

Reversible Table Runner:

I tweaked the second Let It Snow table runner's design. I glued some snowflake gems to the snowflakes and instead of leaving the back blank, I made a Valentine's Day side. I also zig-zagged the edges together so the burlap won't unravel. I used white thread on top and red thread on the bottom.


On another note, I was contracted by relatives to make a couple of things. They turned out cute, so I thought I would share...
