If you missed projects from days 1, 2, and 3, click on the links above. Are you ready for day 4...another "faux sew" project for sewing-challenged people? 


Here's what you need:

SUPPLIES
  • Scrap piece of burlap
  • Scissors
  • Jute twine
  • Straight upholstery needle


Cut your burlap placemat to the desired size. I just used the size of the scrap piece I had.
Thread your straight upholstery needle with the jute twine.


Tie a simple knot in the end of the twine.


Start at one corner of the burlap piece.


Weave the needle up and down making stitches approximately 1.5 inches in length.


Continue around the perimeter.
Finish on the bottom side of the fabric and tie off the end with a knot.



Place it on a side table, bedside table, dinner table, etc.
Another easy-peasy burlap project!
