Repurposed Burplap Bag ~ From Bean Bag to Book Bag
I made this bag months ago, and despite the fact that it is one of my most favorite projects, I forgot to write about it! Over a year ago, a friend sent me a bag o' beans. The beans were delicious, and you know I couldn't throw away that bag! It languished in my stash for a while and one evening I was in need of a quick project to make me feel like I accomplished something. Why is it that laundry never feels like an accomplishment? It never ends, unlike this project. I had this baby finished in under an hour. The lining is flipped over on the outside of the bag and top-stitched down. The bag was cute, but it needed a little something and I had this hideously delightful vintage trim. Does that ever happen to you? You find something that for all intents and purposes is U-G-L-Y, but you just know it will be perfect for something. Anyone? Anyone? I am a sucker for trim, I will tell you that.
