Burlap Coffee Bean Sack Turned Pillow Sham!

I found these burlap coffee bean sacks at a yard sale last summer and 
thought they were really cool . I decided to turn them into pillow shams!


This is how they looked when I began. 
I cut them to size for use as a standard pillow sham.



Once again, I should have taken more during pics : (
I used some pieces of white linen I had left over from another project 
to make a band around the opening and to make some ties.


I wish I had more designs to work with, maybe I'll find some different brands in the future. 
Today I was in Home Goods and noticed they had boxes covered in what looked 
like burlap coffee bean sacks (almost decoupaged). They looked really cool, and may be 
one of my next projects! What a fun idea for storage!


Maybe not the softest thing to lie back on, but certainly cool to look at!


Hmmnn...  what's the word I am looking for?
 Contradicting?
