What to do with burlap?

I was in Minneapolis last week and was able to make a stop at the caribou coffee corporate office and get some burlap! The green coffee beans are shipped from all over the world to be roasted in these burlap bags. You can find many different prints on the burlap depending on where it is from. So I stocked up, and filled my car! 

These are some of the prints that I was able to get! 

This weekend I made some stuff with my new burlap!
Tote bags:



The tote below was a special request from a friend. The burlap did not have this on it, I printed it from the computer onto and iron on transfer. This was the result!

I also made a table runner:

 And started designing my 2013 Holiday stockings! after last year, I know that I need to start much sooner!


That's it for today! I am hoping that I can find some time this week to get more stuff made!

I love it! I never knew that there were so many things you could do with burlap. I really love the totes that you made. They are very fashionable. Your Christmas stocking is adorable. I wonder how early you had to get started on it.
