I have been seeing all sorts of burlap table runners in blog land. I found this perfect strip of burlap for 25 cents at Salvation Army...and another day I found this funky rick rack in a giant ball for 50 cents. The rick rack looked dirty so I set it in a bowl of water with a bit of detergent for a day...actually I forgot about it and found it sitting there the next morning. The water was indeed dirty and the rick rack was a variegated vintage looking tan/brown. Just perfect to go with my burlap!
I didn't even cut the burlap...just pressed down the long edges and sewed the rick rack on top of that. I did use Fray Check to keep it from fraying. At the ends I sewed two strips of the rick rack and I just left the selvage edge unfinished.
I would photograph it on my table but my table is filled with my sewing and crafting mess at this point!
I don't think I could have found a more perfect trim for the burlap!
I love burlap. That turned out great. :) Happy weekend to you. And thanks for joining the link party every week. I love it!

Love the rustic feel. The rickrack is just enough.
I love anything with burlap. This is so cute! I may have to make this for my holiday table!
I love it! I have to ask, though... when you use burlap, are you getting pieces of it flying around? I tried to make one of these and it was all linty on my black table? Maybe I am doing something wrong...anyhoo, I love yours! Great job!
i love the simplicity and versatility in this runner. fantastic job!
