Its been a while that I’ve been obsessed by this particular fabric. And every time I see these gunny bags lying around in my craft space, which of course is the result of me falling head over heels over them and then picking them up, I get tempted to make something out of it. But thanks to Melanie Thompson that I actually got the courage to make a cushion out of it, for I always thought they are hard and are not very comfortable. I was wrong.

Burlap is not only comfortable but is tough too. To top, it looks extremely chic. The star on top comes from the same burlap bag which I have cut and stitched. It is not really the look I wanted, but for a hands on lesson, this was great. Both doing and seeing what its becoming into.

Vintage ones will follow!

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

  1. Nice post again.. but isn’t the material rough on the skin??? I agree it is not a pillow, but still as a cushion, it can leave marks and scratches..right?

  2. Hey Shri, no. I used to have a similar idea that they were rough and bad for skin but they aren’t. Its quite in vogue now. And it doesnt leave marks and scratches at all šŸ™‚

  3. The stars were part of the burlap bags that I had. I stitched the cushion from the plain part and then snipped the stars from the sides (they formed the border) and stitched it on one corner of the bag. I procrastinating few vintage ones…lets see how they come up!!!
