My Simple Homespun Look

I went to our local fabric store and found a lovely little bolt of tea-towel fabric.
It reminds me of the beautiful vintage grain sack table runners
that I see being sold all over the internet for a fortune.
I'm loving the way it looks and it comes with the sides already pre-hemmed.

  1. Oh! I love that! What was the fabric store called, being that I'm sorda in your neck of the woods?

  2. I have seen that fabric at Fabricland in the past? Is that where you got it? I have always thought I would like to get some but forget every time I am in the store! Looks nice on your table!

  6. Love how the tea-towel runner looks on your table, but it's that bold rooster that caught my eye! HaHa!

    You really are a New West girl, aren't you Catherine? Yes, the house was relocated to St. Patrick's street. How could you tell?!

  9. Good find! Ikea had kitchen towels like that a while back too. I bought some but have not done anything with them yet. I like your idea of using them as a table runner.

  14. Thanks for stopping by! Apparently we get a few earthquakes in Canada, we just don't usually notice them.

    I have seen that fabric, in several border colours at Fabricland also. They are usually piled under one of the cutting tables and anyone interested might have to ask for it.
