Rentry via Handbag

Well hello! For a long time I felt like I didn't really have anything to say, but now I can manage so here goes....

I agreed to make something to donate to a school auction, and here's what I came up with today. The idea for a burlap handbag came from one of my favorite magazines, GreenCraft. This magazine is a really quality publication, from the printing to the projects featured.

I liked the idea turning a free burlap coffee bag into something that I would actually be willing to carry. The pattern is free purse pattern that I made previously as a gift.

I love the side with the text. Love, love, love it! I am going to have a hard time getting rid of this bag.

So cute! I've been loving the burlap bag up-cycled style lately. Isn't this pattern cute?


Another great way to use up the burlap bags.

You're blogging! Woohoo. Where did you get the burlap sacks? Is it awful to work with? The bag is super cool.
