|DIY Upcycled Coffee Sack Pouf (Footrest)|
Gunny sacks, Burlap, Jute, all very fun to use for crafts and DIY projects.
Coffee sack burlap/Jute is a great sustainable material. It’s a natural, biodegradable, and strong fabric. In my garden I use it to layer-in a weed barrier prior to planting in the flower beds or vegetables. I use it for mound gardening and mulch with it too. I drape some of the old fabric and threads on shrubs for birds to use for nesting. Using the coffee sacks for crafts was a little messy - so I have been cutting it outside.
Here are some photos of items that I've created from old coffee sacks. Some of these items will be available on etsy in the future.

The zip bags below leveraged left over curtains as the lining. So happy to finally use up that old fabric and create something fun. All the ladies wanted one of these.

I made up a large number of coffee sack covered boxes. These are very sturdy. I used lots of elmers as well as hot glue.
