FEATHERED NEST FRIDAY & GIVEAWAY!


Gotta love old burlap sacks.
I found a couple of half pieces at a thrift store recently
and brought them home.


I wasn't sure just exactly what I would do with them
Fold them up and stack them.
line an old basket
or make a few little outdoor pillow covers.


The price was right
and even though they were a little beat up and only in half sections,
there was something about them that was so charming.


They just may pop into a basket for sale at a friends antique show this fall!
But I haven't sewn them closed yet
I am thinking a couple of ties maybe to keep it simple?
Any ideas?

Crazy busy here with back to school schedules and projects!
How's your week going?

  3. Hi Courtney! Thank you so much for hosting - I truly enjoy looking at the other posts linked up. I also want to let you know that I added your giveaway on my sidebar. I tried to look for my initial comment on the giveaway page, but couldn't find it, so I commented on the giveaway page today (so sorry if there happens to be a duplicate). Thanks so much for the opportunity. Have a blessed day!

  10. Hi Courtney...

    Oooh...you scored BIG TIME with the burlap sacks, my friend! They're awesome! Love that you made pretty pillow slips with them! I think that just adding ties for closure would be perfect! They look soooo very pretty on your chairs! Thank you for sharing your new pretties with us today and thank you for hosting this sweet party, dear friend!

    Loved all of the beautiful inspirations that you showcased this week! Each one is lovely!!!

    Warmest summery wishes,
    Chari @Happy To Design

  12. Hi Courtney, I love the burlap. It has a great print and looks so good in the french chair. I'll just bet they'll stay with you. Keeping it simple is the way to go, how about a button closure on back so nothing competes with the charming print. Love them. Great features from last week too. Busy with end of season gardening and summer clean-up. Can't wait to hang a fall wreath on the front door.
    Thanks for hosting........

  14. Hi Courtney, Love the burlap with the great print. I'll just bet these stay with you. They look so charming in the french chair too. Have you thought about a simple button closure on back so the pillows keep their shape. Love the features from last week.

  27. The pillows are so cute. You got some pieces with great graphics on them! I think some ties on the ends would look adorable. Maybe some strips of red ticking :)

  28. The "laying mash" bag brings back memories. My grandfather had chickens on his farm and I remember these types of bags. I also remember the rooster who flogged me when I was five years old. Needlessly to say he was in a stew by dinnertime.
    Thanks for the memories and thanks for hosting.

  42. A single great big button might be a great closure for your sacks. You could sew on a coordinating flap of material. Great photos!
