My friend and I were at a fair traded organic coffee shop the other day, and we saw that the empty sacks are on sale for $2. We both purchased sacks wanting to try some form of creative work on it. I did a few sketches and opted to try out this applique for a window panel.
I separated the sack into two by trimming the off the edges, and used one piece to create this.
some work with ribbon, and felt ...
I did put the backing and the border with some blueish grey material and sewed a casing for the rod. This is my experimental project and I do like the way it turned out. I think I will be going to the coffee shop to buy a couple of more sacks :)
And, as for this one, I will be giving away as a gift.
