I found a whole bunch of burlap bags at a chocolate factory that used to be full of cocoa beans(they smell wonderful!). I would like some creative ideas about what to make out of them.

tote bags, purses, wallets, recover journals/notebooks, cut open and line a bulletin board, pillows(ewww!~ scratchy! but still smelling good!), Use in a texture heavy playmat?  Place mats? HAng as is for funky art pieces.

There's LOTS you can do with these treasures!!

Not too creative: Curtains?

Hmm cover plants in the winter? I think I have seen people do that.
on the pillows theme, maybe floor cushions? Good lick! What a delightful dilemma! Smiley

Great ideas so far. I have a similar story..
Well not really. I ventured far into the wonderful world of Michaels during a sale and found a roll (umm think 100" roll) of burlap (for $1.50 + tax Cheesy). I made a set of neato grocery bags so far, used for some random sculpure pieces and thats about it. I like the idea of the placemats and floor cushions...
Anymore fun ideas?

Make a Mr/Mrs Potato Head costume?
