Picture this….Virginia Tech…1989…a young co-ed pulls an almost all-nighter sewing by hand an Indian costume for Halloween.
Does, “Picture This”, make you think of the Golden Girls?
The costume has been worn several times over the years. The hand sewing worked like a charm!
Being that the college student was an elementary education major, she kept all of the burlap scraps, “just in case”, she ever needed them.
Back to 2009….Burlap is big! I see it everywhere and am dying to make something. I go to my fabric stash and low and behold, there are my 1989 scraps, tucked away, “just in case”, and wouldn’t you know it, one scrap was perfect for a table runner.
I stenciled a monogram on either end and used iron-on hemming tape to add chocolate brown ribbon to all of the sides.
I’m so glad that I saved those scraps back in 1989!
