Burlap and Ruffles

Now that Christmas is behind us, I had to figure out what else to make for my shop. I have made some runners in the past, but wanted to add a bit to them. So I made some ruffles and fabric flowers! 
 I added some vintage buttons and gems for some fun detail.
 Some birds have eyes, and some just a wing. They are all made with a soft ivory fabric with a light grey script print.
 I have had a bin full of vintage lace I bought at a estate sale, I finally found a use for it.

 I made some place mats to match, it looks great all together on a table!!
Any other good burlap ideas out there?? Maybe I will go and get some pin-speration!!

How do you clean these? Or are they strictly for prettiness??

Thanks everyone!
Monica~ I reccomend spot cleaning only, they do not fair well in a machine! I never actually eat on them, they are just to be pretty!
