Burlap Table Runner

I didn't love my table runner, could be that my kids have gotten stains all over it, or it could be that my husband and his first wife got it as a wedding gift. Either way, it had to go.
So I purchased 3 yards of burlap and 3 yards of muslin. Both are super cheap. I measured both and cut them to be 9 feet long by 20 inches wide.

Then I folded in the hem all the way around both fabrics about 1/2" and pinned.

Once it was all pinned, I did a zigzag stitch.

After it was all sewed, I cut some vinyl that said feed (so it would look like the old bags that used to hold animal feed) and stuck it on the burlap, I just painted the inside.

Let dry completely, then...Voila!!
