Burlap + buffalo plaid = so much fun! Scrap material was left over from making envelope pillow covers and this banner with burlap and buffalo check was the perfect way to put it to good use.
Supplies to make banner with burlap and buffalo check:

- 1/3 yard of your favorite fabric. It doesn’t have to be buffalo plaid;-) BUT, in case that is what you really want, here is a link to red and black buffalo check fabric sold by the half yard on Amazon.
- Burlap. (this should be enough!)
- Fabric scissors.
- Thread to match fabric
- Sewing machine. Here is a link to my model. It works great for beginning sewers such as myself.
- Straight sewing pins
- Jute string. I used about 5 feet.
Repeat the above steps for your burlap. Note, I used a piece of burlap I already had that was left over from who knows what. It was less than 10 inches in length so it ended up quite a bit shorter than the buffalo check.
After cutting into 2 inch strips, begin pulling the jute twine through the top of your strips. I tied one end of the twine to a safety pin to make it easier to string through the fabric strips. Alternate your fabrics.
Super easy and a great way to use fabric scraps! I will likely trim the edges of the buffalo plaid so the strips will be more similar in length.
My plan is to fray the burlap edges a bit more and add several more strips both types of fabric to give the banner a bit more bulk. But for now, you get the idea!
I hope you enjoyed how to make a banner with burlap and buffalo check! It’s always fun to find ways to use things that might otherwise be thrown away.
Leave me a note below; I’d love to hear from you!
