But I'm so pleased with the finished product, I suppose it's all worth it.
First I cut the burlap into strips, then squares, then sewed up the sides. (Why do I have such a hard time with the sewing machine? I used to tell people all I could sew was straight lines but now I'm even wondering about that! And my sewing machine is always giving me fits; constantly de-threading itself when I get started. For those of you that sew, why is that? What am I doing wrong?)
Well anyway, here's several little "bags" I finally got sewed up and am ready to sew on the straps.
Here's one with the lacy strap sewed on.
I then hot-glued some old jewelry pieces on for some 'bling'. These are just the right size for a mason jar full of fresh-picked blooms. (or in this case, faux ones! ha)
Look how cute they are, displayed on this old window screen.
I'm really liking these. They would also look cute on a door-knob, a wall hook, and really cute on a fence post or maybe on a gate in the garden?
Now I need your help coming up with a name for them. I was thinking burlap cozies? (like cozies for your drinks?) or mason jar huggies? What do you think?
Here's another quick project: I turned-up the handle of an old kitchen utensil and attached it to a small piece of lattice. So cute! (and yes, those pansies are fake too! Maybe I'll have to find some real ones for my next sale this Sunday; real ones would probably look better, right? ha)
Well, thanks so much for visiting!! and don't forget; I need those name suggestions! If your suggestion gets picked, you win a prize!
