Burlap Leaf TableRunner

                                                                                                      


Fall is in the air and we all know what that means . . . new fall projects!  I found pretty orange burlap in the remnant section at Hobby Lobby and couldn't resist the price - a couple of dollars for almost two yards of fabric.  Hot d ...!  I've always wanted to make a whimsical fall table runner, something quirky and different.  If you follow me on my blog, you know I can do quirky and different.
I'm not good at drawing so I copied a leaf and blew it up as much as I could to fill a 8½"x11" sheet of paper. Then I cut it out and used it as a pattern on my burlap which is really a vibrant shade of orange. So beautiful!

 I doubled the fabric and cut two out at a time. I guess I could have made more than one pattern .  .  . 

 After cutting out the leaves, I outlined the edges with white puffy paint and let dry for four hours following the directions.
 
It took about three bottles to outline 28 leaves.
 
After the puffy paint dried I held a steam iron over the leaves to puff the paint.
 
Next, I laid out the leaves in a pattern with a row of leaves down the center, flanked by leaves on each side, making them all touch. I glued where they met with Aileen's Extra Tacky Glue.


 
I love the design! 
 
Do you think it's quirky and different?
 

 
 
 It sure didn't take long to make!
 
 

And I still have a little less than a yard of the orange burlap left. Who knows what I'll make next!
 


Take a little time to enjoy,

  2. Gail that's fantastic, it really is such a lovely pattern and no sew is always a winner. I must try puffy paint but I'm not sure what on.

    I am of course counting down to Spring in 8 days. It's always so funny to me to see the opposite seasons playing out around the world.

  24. Kind of looks like coral if you hang it long ways on the wall!

    I had no idea burlap came in colors.

    I swear I had a dream about this a few nights ago. Maybe we're connected in some way?
