Having said all of that, I think they turned out really well considering I don't like it. LOL
This is a burlap table cloth with detachable skirt. The skirt Velcros on and off. So if you just want the topper, you can remove the skirt very easily. This is not the table the cloth was made for, but it was the closest thing I had to the real size to get a picture. I made this for a friend who wanted to be able to sit at the table without pulling the skirt under. But she didn't want to be able to see under the table either. So the skirt is made with 4 pieces - 3 skirt panels and a band to hold it all together.

This is just a square pillow. I'm showing this because I want you to see the difference in cutting your fabric to eliminate those dreaded dog ears. I actually made the adjustment once, and I still had the dog ears. I think it's because this linen burlap just stretches so much.
|Don't like those dog ears!|
|Much better! (linen burlap)|
Oh, I have to show you my invisible zipper. It is by far the best one I've ever done. If the slide wasn't there, you wouldn't know it zipped!
|Lovin' that invisible zipper.|
And this last one is just a loose, floppy, flanged pillow using the same linen burlap as the square pillow.

If you work with burlap or linen burlap, you really have to be diligent about cleaning your machines when you are finished. It really builds up a lot of lint inside.
Thanks for stopping by!
