Coffee bean sack cushion

I’ve put to use, my free coffee grain sacks that I posted about earlier, here.
I picked up this down filled cushion this past week for $4. It was the perfect width to use the coffee bean sack as is, without cutting off the binding on the sides.
I used jute to close the top, mimicking the sides. I have no idea what type of needle this is, or even where I got it, but it worked like a charm.
One thing I found out is that the burlap frays easily. I solved that by running a very fine stitch, close to the edge , then used the jute to sew it closed by hand.
I’m linking this up at the following parties. Go see fabulousness :)

  1. I found a place in town that will sell them to me for $3 a piece. Do you think that's a good deal? How 'rough' are they? What else do you think you might make?

  2. Looks great, that was such a great score! What else will you do with them?

  3. Cute idea!! Thanks for linking my Flaunt it Friday party! Come back soon! :)

  4. Oh these came out great!! Do they smell like coffee? It wouldn't bother me, I love the smell of coffee!

  5. What a great find. They look great! I need to find some coffee bags.

    I hope you can stop by my blog and share your project with my followers. I am having my Show Off Sunday Party.
