I just cut the hessian (burlap) to size and sewed a border about 1cm in from the edge. I attached the measuring tape trim along each short end, and then frayed the edges of the burlap.
The measuring tape trim is a heavy cotton tape. This is the cream colour. Spotlight also had it in white and it was about $3 per metre.
Aren't these pale pink roses pretty? They are just from Woolies and are displayed in old glass jars and bottles.
I had some tape left over so I glued it onto an old medicine bottle. The other bottle is just a section of scrapbook paper that I glued on with mod-podge.
This was super easy to make. I also think the measuring tape trim would look great around the hem of a skirt or other piece of clothing. What would you use it for?
