Our local Joann's closed and opened in a new location. It is very snazzy with lots more craft items, offers all kinds of classes and now sells Viking/Husqvarna sewing machines and accessories. I have a bunch of 50% discount coupons so I am using them to pick up things like Kona cotton, buttons and home dec fabric.
Burlap seems to be all the rage. I saw a half yard piece in the remnant section. It was discounted 50% so I thought I would grab it.
So, now what do I do with it? A table runner seems the most logical idea just because of the way it is cut. I am thinking maybe simple appliques on it and then ruffles at either end. I don't want to get too elaborate - it's just burlap for heaven's sake! I think I will lay it out on the dining room table and see if it "speaks" to me.
Has anyone ever washed this stuff?
