Create with recycled burlap!

Burlap is my favorite fabric to sew with! I love the texture and since most of the burlap I use are from recycled coffee bean bags, most of them have some great unique prints on them!
 Besides burlap, I love to add fun printed cottons and duck fabrics to the bags to give them even more character! Sometimes its on the out side, other times its inside!

 This one is one of my favorite bags! I used burlap ribbon from Hobby Lobby! That's the other great part about burlap is you can find it everywhere and there are some great prints and ribbons out there!
 There is something about this design that I just love, I just wish I knew what it said! That's one of the great things about these coffee mean bags, they come from all over the world and are so unique!

What have you made with burlap lately?

Decorate with Old Windows

I love to decorate with old windows! This weekend I spent some time cleaning and decided to pull this one out of the garage. I finally had the perfect spot!

 It works perfectly about my fireplace! Now my spring and Easter decor is all set! Too bad we are supposed to get per a foot of snow tomorrow. This has been the longest winter ever!

But if I get a SEW day out of it, it will be worth it! Then I can make more of these cuties!

I made a new owl yesterday using 2 recycled sweaters. One for the body and another for the wings. This is the softest owl ever!

I just may have to make a few more if we get to stay home tomorrow! 
Wishful Thinking! It's a good thing I love my job! 
Happy Monday!

Burlap Easter!

Well it appears that I forgot to blog all winter. The burlap tree skirt season took over and I am still recovering! What a great season it was! Recently I have been having some fun creating burlap Easter decor!
 You may recall these bunnies I made a couple of years back, I made more last week!
I also made some new Easter items

Burlap Carrots

And fianlly my favorite, this adorable burlap bunny wreath!
The wreath is wrapped in burlap, along with some burlap carrots and a bunny! 

I hope to be back here much more often. Leave me some comments of things you would like to see on the blog!
