Grain Sack Round Runner

SONY DSC

Can runners be round?  I don’t know, but since I have a round table in our dining area, I decided to do a round piece using that grain sack type fabric I used on my pillow that I showed you here.  This time I used the tan with beige striped fabric.

I used a silver tray I had that was about the size I wanted the round to be, turned it over, and used a pencil to trace around it on the fabric.

I cut it out and wound up buying a vintage looking trim from Hobby Lobby to use on the edge.

I sewed it on, ironed it, and it was done within a half hour!

A pretty simple project and here it is on the table with my newly painted pot sitting on top of it.

I’m not sure what else I might make with this fabric ~ I’m thinking about Christmas stockings and fabric gift bags. Even after the pillow cover and this table round I’ve still got plenty left!

That is so adorable. I have to make one for my coffee table. I can't have a long one because Hubby likes to put his feet on the table and you can imagine what would happen with a regular runner.

Love it! The trim really makes it perfect! Stockings would be great made out of that fabric.

I love it! The trim adds a nice touch, but I'd love it even without that!

Kathy---

First of all I nearly fell over when I saw your comment today. I came right over to see if you had taken a break because I haven't seen any of your posts come up on my feed. Gosh---I'm so sorry that I've been absent. I signed in to follow you by email. Now I need to catch up with you! Sounds like you've been sewing up a storm. I love this round runner. I have a round table, too, and all I have ever found 'round' is doilies and I'm not a fan. I think gift bags would be a great ideal for the remainder of your burlap. If you use them for the holidays you could even stamp something on them.

Thank you SO much for your comments. I now know the joy you get being Lala!! And congrats on a new little one in your future!!

Take care. We're back in touch now! :)

Love the runner Kathy. And just sneaked a peek at the pillow you made with this fabric too. Love it too! I think Christmas stockings would be wonderful out of this fabric. Have fun sewing.

Hugs,
❤️Ana

I love round runners too and changing up from the routine rectangular ones. I love that trim and will have to check out that vintage trim at HL! Gosh, I was just there today! Pretty!
