burlap?! burlap!

I have always snubbed my nose at burlap- I have always thought of it as scratchy and weird, to be honest. However... Lately, I keep running into things on Etsy made out of burlap and am thinking it's pretty cool! Take these things for example...

I am in LOVE with this burlap coffee sack bag! Amazing, right?! Get one here!


What a cute idea- making a banner out of burlap like this one in coastline's etsy store! She is super talented and so sweet as well! :)

What would YOU make out of burlap?? I am thinking I want to try to find some old grain sacks and make a purse! :) Have a creative week, my friends! xo!

I have a burlap table runner from coastline off etsy. I love it! My mom is making a purse out of burlap now as an experiment. I can't wait to see how it turns out.

The banner is adorable as is the purse! I have to be a much better seamstress to attempt to sew anything with burlap! ;)

At the fabric store I keep eyeing this 5" wide roll of burlap with red lines going though it. I think it's for reupholstering furniture. I still haven't decided what to make out of it, so haven't purchased any but now I will if only to have 5 yards of it in my stash to look at!

I tried a burlap shower curtain a couple of years ago and LOVED the way it looked. But it smelled a bit funny in the most humid room in the house, so now it covers my garden in case of frost in the fall!

Let Ashley know she can buy MANY colors of burlap at most fabric stores!

Hi Holly; Love that bag, but I really really love that banner, that is what I would make. How different it is and it looks so nice... Now if you make your bag, don't forget to show it off..... Have a wonderful week.
