Burlap Ruffle Tablecloth Tutorial

The first day of October hit and I just couldn’t wait to climb up into the attic and pull out all my Fall decor.  I had seen a tablecloth similar to this done somewhere and it has been on my home decor bucket list.  I just love the rawness of burlap, it screams FALL!!!Here is the tutorial.

You will need:

A square piece of burlap (mine is 42″ x 42″)
White fabric (I used scraps of a bed sheet I had cut up for another project)
Sewing machine

Start with your white fabric and cut into 3″ strips.  I cut about 10 yds which turned out to be more than enough.

Set your sewing machine on the longest stitch.  Sew down the middle of each strip of fabric.

Once you have sewn a stitch down each strip of fabric grab one side of the thread and pull until your fabric starts to ruffle. (Shown is a different ruffle you could do instead of sewing down the middle you can sew along the side)

Now that you have your ruffles pin them around the edge of your burlap.

Cut off the excess ruffle when you get to the end of each side.

Once it is all pinned set your stitch length on your sewing machine to a shorter stitch.
Sew the ruffle to the burlap by sewing straight over the ruffle stitch.

Tada! Now you have your completed burlap ruffle tablecloth.

If you are not a DIYer then you can purchase one at the market that will be held in my house on November 12th. What….  you haven’t heard???  Well, mark your calendar for November 12th and come, with your Christmas gift money in hand, on over to the Market On Belvin!  You will have the opportunity to tour The Rescued Home and purchase handmade and vintage items sold by local vendors.

I will post more information in the next few weeks.

I hope you are all doing well and enjoying the change in seasons.

With love,
