Ribbonista Handmade Gift Hop!


The Ribbonistas are hosting a handmade gift hop!
I decided to make this burlap table runner. I had seen one similar at my local Ben Franklin store & thought I had the perfect May Arts ribbon to add!
This runner uses 1/2 yard of red burlap.
I started by turning the edges twice & machine stitching to keep the burlap from fraying.
I then added 1.5" natural faux burlap and 5/8" natural crochet ribbon to each side, machine stitching them in place.
Here is the underside of the end- I stitched down the outside & did a little stitch in the middle to hold it together.
I added a tassel on each end made from 1/8" ivory cord/burlap & more of the crochet ribbon.
I really love how it turned out & think it will be a well-received gift!
I know you're going to want to see what inspiration the other ribbonistas have for you!
Don't forget to leave a comment at each blog to increase your chances to win 3 spools of  ribbon-your choice!

Happy Hopping!

  5. Great table runner. I was thinking you could even use adhesive to put the bands on - maybe even the hemming. Fast, easy project. thanks for the idea.
