Well I finally got rid of that horrible smell! I wasn’t sure if I was even going to be able to do anything with them because of the smell. But storing them outside for months worked. I washed them on a gentle cycle and ran them through the dryer just to make sure the smell was gone!
I didn’t really care for the advertisement on the burlap sacks so I thought I would make my own advertisements. Using my Cricut, I made a stencil you see below.
“Funderburk’s Feed & Seed” on one and…..
“Red Rooster Coffee” on the other.
I used only one of the burlap sack bags. I cut it in half and sewed three sides. I made a pillow to insert inside and tied the fourth side with jute string.
I wasted nothing with this burlap sack bag! The little piece I had left over, I wrapped around a candle and tied it with a piece of jute string.
In the mean time, we’re making good progress on our powder room make-over. Our oldest son, who is a jack of all trades, is going to move some plumbing pipes and then we can install the pedestal sink.
As always, thanks for your visit and have a wonderful day.
