So, I could NOT resist any longer.
I purchased my burlap, did NOT measure, did not use stencils and made my own (much smaller banner).
Anyway, I like my little Fall banner and it was easy. If you are anal follow the tutorial above, if you are like me....cut them approximately the same, paint them free hand, sew together roughly with twine/hemp and pucker a little and TA DA...not perfect but LOVED!
I am also working on a little project with the remnant burlap...stay tuned. :D
