Easy Guide On How To Make Burlap Coffee Sack Pillow
I love finding unique fabrics such as these burlap bags and creating projects with them. I was junking through an antique shop a few months back and found lots of coffee bean sacks lying on the floor for $5.00 each. I purchased 6. I did not know what I wanted to make with them. Until I found a solution. here is an Easy Guide On How To Make Burlap Coffee Sack Pillow for my son’s bed. His bed needed some pillows and these burlap coffee sacks would be perfect.
What you will need!
- burlap coffee sacks
- fabric scissors
- sewing machine
- heavy-duty thread needle
- heavy-duty thread
- pillow stuffing or old pillows
Wash the burlap bags by hand with dishwashing soap. Let them dry outside. Do not put in the dryer.
Take the used burlap coffee sacks and turn them inside out. Cut one side open and place a pillow inside. The top of the bag is open.
Pin the sides so the burlap coffee bag so it conforms perfectly with the pillows. Take the pillow out and sew the pin side completely and leave the top open. Turn the coffee bean bag back to its proper side.
Place the pillow inside and sew the top by hand with a large needle and heavy-duty thread. Make sure you sew the tops with small stitching and twice if you can. You can use a zipper, but these coffee sacks cannot be washed, they will fall apart in the wash.
They turned out great and my son loved them. I think I will go back and buy more burlap coffee bags to make some other cool projects! There are so many fun projects you can do with them. You can frame them, make shopping bags, use combine them, and make a large tablecloth. What would you do with them? I love to hear your suggestions.
