Burlap Bust

So I bought some burlap recently to make some sacks for a baby shower. I made one sack then thought, maybe I should wash it. I remembered something from Pinterest about washing and cutting burlap the "right" way, so I went with it. This is what I ended up with:

You're supposed to add some bleach, wash, and then lay it out to dry. Well, I followed the directions and ended up with that mess. I don't know if it's worth saving--what do you guys think? Try to work it out and make something of it (I'm no longer going to use it for the baby shower) or just toss it?


  1. do a no sew, cut out circles and gather and tie off with a ribbon maybe

    1. Thanks for the idea. I think if I do anything with it I'll cut it into strips and wrap a wreath form with it.
