I recently made the sweetest little burlap table skirt. Jennifer wanted a burlap skirt with a touch of white to cover a small side table in her living room.
I added a white ruffle with a pom pom detail about 4″ up from the hem. I’m loving the way this table skirt turned out!
In order to take a photo of the table skirt I draped it over a bar stool. Jennifer’s table is actually shorter and wider than what is shown here.
The ruffle is made from a 2″ piece of white cotton gathered along the middle. I left the edges raw and frayed just a bit because I liked the way the raw edges looked against the burlap.
The ruffle is then stitched in place along the center gathering line.
I used a zig-zag stitch to attach the pom pom yarn (found at Michaels) on top of the ruffle. When stitching the zig-zag, I skipped each pom pom and stitched every other between space.
I definitely want to use this detail again. I can see this on pillows, curtains, lamp shades, table runners….So.Very.Sweet!
Now for my Pinteresting Question…
I would love to know how you guys feel about the Pin It Button that shows up when you hover over each image throughout the blog posts.
1. Do you like being able to Pin from each photo?
2. Or is the blurring of the image as you hover over the photo a nuisance?
Personally, I would love to have the Pin It option without the blurring. As of right now, I don’t think that is an option.
***UPDATE*** We now how a new Pin It Button! Thanks so much for your helpful comments. The new button has the ease of Pinning without the blurring!
