|Burlap Ribbon bought at Michael's.|
Next, I doubled the drop cloth lengthwise, measured about 15 inches in from the end, and laid the yard stick across it for a straight edge. I cut the 15 inch section off the drop cloth. Now I only have one edge to hem.
Next I hemmed the raw edge. Then I measured about 44 inches of the burlap ribbon and cut it in half, about 22 inches for each of the ruffles. You may notice that I sewed the burlap on the top of the drop cloth. This was just my preference, no other reason. I had thought I might also sew some trim on it, but decided against that. I just sewed slowly, gathering the burlap as I sewed across. Total cost of this project.....zero. I had everything on hand already! My kind of project!
|I'm going to rub a stain pen across the white thread you see in this picture so it won't show where I hemmed the edge of the burlap ribbon.|
All that's left now is to put it on the table and decorate the table for Thanksgiving.
|This photo shows the table protector pad on the table.|
|Protective pad still on the table.|
|Here I had removed the protective pad. Isn't the wood beautiful? Notice the inlay on the sides.|
|Changed the side table.|
The dining room table is not final. I am trying to decide what I want to put on the runner. It will be alright for a few days. I'll show you what the final table looks like once I've decided.
Hope you all have a wonderful week!!!
