I have 10 coffee bean sacks, 36" length, 28" width. They have pretty designs on them. I need some ideas of what I can do with them.

    You could cut them saving designs if possible and reassemble them as a quilt, if they are made from fabric and not from plastic. If they are made from plastic you can put them together and make rugs.

    if made of cloth/burlap consider using as kitchen door covers. If made of paper then decoupage them onto kitchen cabinet doors.

    Kitchen curtains would be darling or seat covers at the dining table or just frame them

    They sound interesting ...maybe frame them for wall art? Or if they are not too scratchy they sound abou the size of a standard pillow.

    The obvious choice would be porch cushions, or maybe hang them outside for hat/gloves storage. Fold both sides down and sit a pot plant on a deep saucer in one. Or you could nest straw in the bottom of one, unstitch and fold the front down and keep your eggs there. Would look quite good hung with meat hooks (or shower curtain hooks) in your kitchen. You could think of places in your home where would they suit hanging - with toilet paper in them, toys, surplus supermarket plastic bags, rolls of clingfilm,/foilwrap etc , rice, coffee beans would be quite good in them too - just halfway full though. The ideas are endless... Do let us know what you do with them, please. :)

    You can use them as art in a frame, on an ottoman or chair, or even as a pillow.

    I know! I know! I know what you could do with the sacks.......give 'em to me!! ;-) They're hard to come by here and I think I would either cover a stool, make a pillow, frame one--the possibilities are endless!

    I would love to know where you find these? People used to make clothes and household goods from them.

    Saw a collection of about 100 burlap coffee bags sold at an estate sale. Soon after someone near me started selling burlap coffee bags on the side of the road in their front yard for $1 a piece with a can to put your money in (honor system). They probably are the one that got them at he estate sale. I stopped and bought 10 different designs. Plan to make throw pillows out of some. One was from El Salvador, where my husband went on a mission trip several year ago. So I framed it, and he hung it on his office wall.
