These no sew, burlap feed sacks are easy and adds lots of country to any dining room or kitchen.

I ordered some plain, flat burlap bags on ebay,


and then just got out my stamps and ink.

I then stuffed them with the fillings from a new pillow from Walmart.  Oddly, this way lots of stuffing only costed $2.50. It was cheaper than buying a bag of regular stuffing in the craft department.

And to seal up the opened top, I just got out my hand stapler and stapled it right up. 
See, they are barely noticeable.
But if that little bit does bother you, you could always go back and hot glue some jute twine on top of them.

And if you notice the squares around the letters, I guess that is because the burlap was a little thick. I did have a cutting board inside them while they were flat.  To try and help with pressing the stamps, but it didn't turn out how I thought. But I do like the little border squares on the letters after all.

I have them sitting in the dinning room beside an old, round, vintage heating stove.

And here they are again, all finished up and tucked into a slat, apple basket.

Primitive Rag Rope Garland

I love doing crafts with fabric. Well that is if not much sewing is involved. I just don't have the patients for like quilting jobs and such. But I can sit and tie a knot. lol.

You just start with a cute fabric, cut it into strips about 6 inches long, inch or two thick. And then sit and tie it into knots along a string of your chosen length. Or sometimes I will even use a string of the same fabric, cut into a desired lenght, to tie them onto. That way it all matches. And that's about all you have to do to make these adorable rag rope garlands.

I do them in fabrics of the season for a holiday look. They always seem to add a touch of country wherever you need it!

They are great for stringing them onto a Primitive Tobacco Stick Tree  like so:

I tend to sell a lot of these in my Peddlers Mall Booth around fall and Christmas.

Do you have a Peddlers Mall close to you?
