Coffee Sack Pillow

I received some burlap coffee sacks and regular burlap bags from BurlapFabric.com. They asked me if I would like some to use to make something fun and of course I said yes!! When I received my box full of bags I couldn't wait to get started.

I decided to turn one of the coffee sacks into a pillow. So I took one of the bags and took it apart.


I ironed it really well (It looks like I need a new iron! I still see wrinkles)

Then cut out two 15" x 15" squares. 

I sewed the pieces together, inserted a pillow form, and slip stitched the open seam. 

I love how one side of the pillow says "Product of" and the other side says "Vietnam". 

Thank you BurlapFabric.com for the bags!! I can't wait to use the rest for other projects! 

If you haven't visited their site you should. They offer the coffee sacks, burlap bags in a variety of sizes, burlap ribbon, jute webbing, twine, cheesecloth, etc. Everything is very reasonably priced. I know where I'll be going for my burlap supplies!!

  35. Great pillow--that aqua stripe sets off the burlap so nicely! Thanks for sharing the Web site--their price on jute webbing is awesome and it comes in so many colors and I can't believe the coffee sacks are just $1.49 each. What a deal!
