Fall Burlap and Denim Table Runner


This was a really fun project!

Featured Winner at 
Crafty Cornucopia Challenge


The tutorial can be found at
Here is Cathy's table runner - it's awesome!

I have had the denim sewn together since 
early spring. Trying to decide the materials
for the insides, which should be squares, I cut them all in circles as well. In frustration, I put it on the back burner.
Until I started cleaning up my craft room and saw that I have a lot of BURLAP.
I went right to work ;)
I got the tutorial from Tole n Treasurers HERE.
I don't claim to be a great seamstress, not even good, which is why my sewing is limited to crafting. Cathy at Tolent Treasurers is also an awesome painter!
I plan to (way, way in the future) also do one of these as a quilt, in both denim and khaki. As you can see, it looks great, either
way you decide to use it - front or back.

I have more fall crafts to post soon!

  2. That looks harder than what I usually try to tackle but it sure is pretty. It's nice to have a few new things to use each season. Happy Fall!

    1. Thanks Danni, actually, I had to perform "major surgery" on mine, the bobbin was acting wonky there for a few minutes, but then again, it is almost 25 years old :) maybe Santa will see his way to getting me a new one!

    1. Hey Linda, it's really more simple than it looks - Cathy's tutorial breaks it down so even I could follow along - except I should'a read it three times, and cut once :)

  7. JoAnn- this is so cute. I'm not much of a seamstress...but I think I can see how this is done. I'm going to check out the tutorial...I might try this if I get the machine going.
    Right now...I'm up to my eyeballs in pumpkins!

    1. Hi Cindi, It's pretty simple to do, it just looks more complicated that it really is. Give it a try :)

  13. Love it! I made a baby blanket like that and it took forever, raw edge must go much faster that flipping circles right side out. Thanks for sharing at what's cluckin

    1. Hey! thanks for commenting. I figured since this was a runner and not likely to get handled a lot, raw edge was ok, but I think pinking the edges would have been pretty, then use a straight stitch instead of the zig zag.
