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!

Hand-Lined Envelopes

We’ve got the music cranked up with a nice cup of tea and are busy bees hand-lining envelopes this afternoon!

Letters to Baby Wright

The hostesses of a baby shower approached Honeycomb Stationery Studio to design and print these adorable ‘Par Avion’ Antique postal system – inspired letters to baby. The hostesses planned on having a table at the baby shower where the guests could create ideas and fill in the blanks for a bit of ad-lib fun!

I LOVE anything antique-inspired, especially travel (ok, mayyybe modern conveniences and technology are a little bit more useful in travelling than antique systems were…) But generally the idea of old suitcases, big sunglasses with a scarf around your head, and hand-delivering packages all over the world just thrills me.

This is also a great option for those mommies-to-be that have decided to not find out the gender or for baby showers that are early in the pregnancy!

I loved working with the hostesses on this project! I guess the only question now is…who is going to teach the baby to read??
