No-sew tablecloth fringe

I finished the edge of this burlap-weave cloth by pulling a few threads on each side.

Yes, I have done that before too on some curtains. When we lived in military housing I had to be inventive with window coverings. No two windows in a house were ever the same...Roxie

Clever!
Looks like an indoor tablecloth too. I'd love to see a picture of how that works with the other decor. I typically associate burlap weaves with outdoors, but I'm always impressed with your design sense.

looks great. I have done something similar on a cloth and ran a straight line of stitching where the fringe starts to ensure I didn't get more fringe than I wanted : )

Ballards Design use burlap as table coverings. My aunt made a window covering from burlap . She pulled strings to create a pattern........design.

That looks great! It would be a good idea, though, to run it once through the sewing machine so that it doesn't continue to ravel.
