Burlap Ruffled Tablecloth

Hello bloggin' friends!  I wanted to share my burlap ruffled tablecloth with you today.  Hilary and I decided that we wanted to have a ruffled tablecloth for the bride's cake table.  I started looking for one and was shocked at the price!  I could only find them on Etsy and most were priced from $200.00 - $350.00!  I decided that I could do this myself and went to work.  I purchased an entire bolt of burlap from Hobby Lobby for $48.00 (using my 40 % coupon).  Of course, I did not need the entire bolt, but I plan to use it for other projects too.  I used about 4 yards for the tablecloth.  I already had the white muslin that I used for some of the ruffles.  It did take ALOT of time but I think it turned out really nice.  Tracy was alot of help with the "math" part of this project.  I spent a total of $22.00 to make this 6 foot tablecloth.  I think that's pretty good savings!  Now.. to figure out what kind of  tablecloth to  put on the other tables.....  I sure am having fun planning this wedding.  Just hope I can get it all done in time.   Thanks for dropping by.
