Burlap Flower Bag


I coffee dyed and embellished this little bag for a burlap flower challenge on the ning group Paper Digital Arts and Imagesbykim .  I used the Tim Holtz "Tattered Florals" die to cut the flower out of burlap and then layered it with some lace flowers, finishing it off with some twine and a little pearl.  Thanks so much for stopping by my nest and leaving such lovely comments, they always make my day.

Take Care - Robin

What a sweet bag, who would have thought 10 years ago, that burlap would be such a popular fabric. I would like to invite you over to my blog. I'm celebrating my first magazine article with a giveaway. The project featured is vintage and made of muslin, burlap's best friend. Come check it out. Thanks, Cindy
