The many faces of vintage burlap

I made a runner yesterday out of some old burlap I found at Roost downtown. I have a ton of old curtains, vintage fabric and ephemera that I’ve been trying to use up. So I tore pieces of this silky fabric and made a huge ruffle to go on both sides of the runner. Then I did an image transfer of  old French typography I found at the Graphics Fairy blog.




I think it turned out pretty well. Burlap is not the easiest fabric to work with since the weave is so loose but I used the iron to press the edgings before I stitched them down.
