Coffee Sack Pillows

A while back, I bought a large stack of coffee sacks at a local coffee shop.

I love them but drew a blank as to what to do with them. This is my first attempt.

Obviously, I haven't sewn them shut. I'm not sure why I feel compelled to share my unfinished projects with you. But thanks for looking!

They may end up on the back porch. I have to keep them AWAY from my husband - they are scratchy, but the cuteness makes up for it, don't you think?

The main problem I had when making them was that, when I cut the burlap, it started to immediately unravel. If I wasn't so lazy, I would have brought out my serger. As it was, I had to do a lot of zigzagging to keep the seams together.

The crazy quilt pillows above actually did come from an old crazy quilt that was in quite bad shape.

My mother took the best parts and made pillows. And I got two!

Love them!

My husband is off to California today to be at a memorial for a friend who recently passed away.

He will be gone five days - I already miss him but I'm glad he could go to be with the family.

Many thanks for all the kind comments about my Island Transformation. I really appreciate all of you who take the time to read this blog and also have fun meeting new friends!


  1. I especially like the crazy quilt pillows. Mom gave me two of them, too. I think it would be fun to make a crazy quilt, someday!

  2. They all look great - so cozy!

  3. The crazy quilt pillows are awesome! I like the coffee sack pillows too! Glad hubby got to go to Cali for the service, wish I could be there too. I hear they might stream it, I'm hoping they do.
