burlap containers

I had to add my touch.
I mentioned in the last post that I had 48 bags to get ready for next week.
I thought I would give you all a look-see
Take Plain burlap bag with cute handles.
Find plastic insert to fit... or not

buy a yard of linen material


fray the edges
believe me after 2 or 3 this was a drag
adhere to front and backside of bag


add a little personal touch

a little more of a personal touch


And Last... the number

some I left the vintage book page off

too cute or what???
A great gift bag, fill it up with Fall goodies or plop in a plant.
They will be available at Junk Bonanza next week

much more later ~ L

What a great idea for repurposing Burlap feedsacks... I have a stack of vintage Burlap bags that an old Farmer gave us out of his Barn years ago and I've been waiting for inspiration to repurpose them to use in interesting ways. I love this idea of the numbers and vintage linen layered on Burlap... mine will be big enough for Laundry Bags!
