Things to do with Burlap!

As creators most if not all of us find ourselves looking at items and going Hmmm I can make something from that.  I am one of those people, it doesn't always come to me in an instant, I may have to put the item aside for a bit and then one day Eureka! An idea strikes!  This is what happened in the case of the burlap throws.

My daughter and son-in-law recently moved from Louisiana back to Texas, the movers wrapped some of their stuff in burlap throws.  Once their house was ready and all their furniture was taken out of storage my husband came home with these throws and was heading to the dumpster.  I said Whoa! where are you going with those? He said well I was going to trash them, but let me guess you want them?  Yep I do! I set it aside and said I don't know what I am going to make with it yet but something surely will come to me.

So Friday I washed one of the throws, and laid it out on my cutting table and started pondering.   And here is what I came up with:

The burlap throw is now a Beach Tote!!!!! 

I just added a panel and divided it into 3 pockets for carrying your sunblock, keys, wallet, phone, etc.  Inside is nice and roomy to hold all your items you need for a day at the beach!  And to think my husband was going to throw it away!!!!
