I got this idea from hgtv, and then realized my sister-in-law is friends
with the lady who designed this stocking for the article. Small world.
I recently scored 20-30, giant, authentic burlap bags at a garages sale for $1. $1 for all of them. Not $1 each. When the lady told me the price, I was thankful
I have such a great poker face was too caffeine deprived for my face to react quickly. $1 for all of them? Are you kidding? Burlap is totally bangin' these days. I don't know what this lady was thinking but I quickly paid my dollar, grabbed the bags, and ran for my life (it took two trips to get them all to the truck).
One of the things I've been trying to do while I'm here in the States is look for lots of cool ideas the talented sewing ladies at Heartline can reproduce. I have no idea if we'll end up selling any of the items I've been playing around with through the Haitian Creations website, but it's been fun to try out new ideas with fabric...particularly burlap. Once I made one stocking, I became obsessed with creating an entire stocking family...one for each of us.
This one was made out of burlap and a tea towel.
Four down, two to go.
Will you do me a favor? If you have a very favorite purse or bag...one that you adore and wish you had 14 more of the same kind, will you leave a link to it?
If you have any ideas for creative projects that use scrap fabric, will you post a link to those as well?
