Burlap Shmurlap

I don’t pretend to be a whiz kid at sewing so upfront I want to confess that this DIY could not have been done without the help of lovely mom, who is a master seamstress grande dame.  Thanks momma!

Materials I used:

2 NILS stools from Ikea – $44.99 each

Coffee Sack from a local flea market – $1

Amazing mom as seamstress

First, I measured out the pattern and how I wanted the image to appear on both stools. Because I used only 1 coffee sack, the prep work was important!

We cut the burlap bag down one vertical seam to measure it out on the stool. Mom hand-stitched the corners using thread from the burlap that we originally cut away (so the thread matched the fabric). She pinned it together and hand-stitched the 4 seams on each stool to perfection!
