potato sack cushions..

i picked up some soft old potato sacks from the markets the other day,..with the intention of sewing one end up and stuffing a cushion insert into it.

looked a little dull.

so,.i pared the hessian back with some lovely lilac and navy blue striped cotton.

the result is a little bit county,..a little bit vintage,..a little bit industrial,..and a little bit cute!

available for sale $28 per cushion + p/h

My man would love those! He has a deep connection to potato sacks- uses them as mats for the dogs, furniture moving drag mats and heaven knows what else.

Can you tell me how you washed the sacks before using them?
