Quick and Easy (and cheap!) "Self Fringe" Pillow

Step One: Cut burlap to size you prefer. Add one inch per side for "fringe".

Step Two: Pin two pieces of burlap together. Remember, there is no right side or wrong side to burlap, so just pin together.

Step Three:
Because burlap tends to fray very easily, you will want to use a small stitch (I set my machine on "1" for stitch length) to sew your pieces together. You do not want the burlap to fray beyond the line that you are sewing. Sew your line one inch from the raw edge. Remember to leave an opening at the bottom of the pillow so that you can add poly-fil.


Step Four: Do NOT turn your pillow inside out. That is why this pillow is so quick and easy! Simply stuff your pillow as is.





Step Five: Pin your opening then sew it closed.

Step Six: The fun part! Simply pull one piece of string at a time from the raw edge to create your fringe. Do this all the way around the pillow. This is quick, easy, and fun. You can even enlist your children's help!








Step Seven: Voila!




Come back tomorrow! I can't wait to show you what else you can do with this pillow!

  13. I am making burlap tablecloths for my daughter's wedding.....18 of them! When I try to fringe, because the burlap is so random, the fringing is coming out uneven....any tips? Do you think 2" fringe is too much? The tablecloths are 90" square and will be overlays to round tables for 10 and round tables for 12 (the venue has the skirts, so I'm just covering the tops.
