BURLAP WEEK: DAY 3
PLAID PATTERN BURLAP COASTER

BURLAP WEEK DAY 1: Deconstructed French Chaise
BURLAP WEEK DAY 2: "Faux Sew" Burlap Pillow Cover
BURLAP WEEK DAY 3: Plaid Pattern Burlap Coaster
BURLAP WEEK DAY 4: Burlap & Jute Placemat
BURLAP WEEK DAY 5: Burlap Tissue Box Cover
BURLAP WEEK DAY 6: Burlap Earring Display

Are you ready for day 3? Today's simple project uses two items: a square of burlap and a straight upholstery needle.


It involves using the needle to lift a burlap fiber that you want to remove and pulling out the entire fiber from the rest of the fabric.


You can create whatever pattern you like. Here is what I ended up with...


Simply place it under a decorative object as shown below.


Another simple fabric project for us sewing-challenged folks!

  5. I love this concept of making a landing place for a treasured object! And your sweet little plaid burlap landing is perfectly simple, but perfectly wonderful. I never give much thought to this concept of making a landing place, but I think I must have genetically inherited the knowledge from generations past - women who collected tatted, embroidered and crocheted doilies and placed them beneath every single candy dish and vase in the house. :) Perhaps this is the fresh version of that tradition? I totally love it! ~diane

  6. I love burlap and these would be cool Christmas gifts. My most recent burlap project was for Halloween, should I share?

    I'd love to invite you to share your work on my Thingamajig Thursday party...
