Round 5 Projects and VOTE!

Hey, friends!  It’s time to see what our Top 3 did with burlap and vote for your favorite project!
Just a few reminders:

1. The results of this vote will determine the winner of the prize from Online Fabric Store, but NOT the contest as a whole.

2. Come back Wednesday-Friday to vote for your all-around favorite crafter; final grand prize results will be posted Friday afternoon.

Ok, here they are:

Entry A: Burlap Sign

I glued the burlap on a MDF board. I made a stencil (of adhesive film) with a quote on it. Then I stuck the stencil on the board and dabbed acrylic paint on it.
After that I drilled two holes and pulled ribbon through it to attach a small test tube.
Then I decorated the board with strips and flowers I made from burlap.
I have made on both sides of the board a screw hook to hang it on a wall with some ribbons.

I glued a small wooden clothes pin on the left side. Finally I put some flowers on the wooden clothes pin and into the test tube (with some water).

Entry B: Burlap Purse & Accessories

I’ve honestly never used burlap before. I wanted to sew it, but I wasn’t sure how easy it would be.  I used 100% natural jute burlap. It’s a lot stiffer than the normal kind, but my sewing machine held up! I did not use a pattern.  This is an original design just for the contest.  I don’t like sewing with patterns anyway.  It takes away from the creative process!
The purse has a burlap band on the front and back, a burlap flower, and burlap bottom and sides. I used gathering stitches to make the fabric gather randomly.  It is lined with the blue material and has an inner pocket made with the flower material.  The straps are a mixture of fabric and beading supplies. It closes with fabric ties.
The hard coin purse is made out of 2 large upcycled juice lids.  I covered each lid with batting and fabric and joined them with a zipper. It has a green ribbon tab to make it easy to open. I made a burlap flower for the top to match the purse.
I also made a multipurpose zip bag.  It has lining made with the blue fabric with several dividers and credit card holders made with the flower fabric.  I sewed a burlap band on the front. It can be used as a wallet, a cosmetic bag, or as a separate clutch.
It’s hard to believe that this is the last craft for the contest.  I’ve had so much fun participating!

Entry C: Braided Burlap Rug

For my burlap project I decided to keep it simple! I made a braided burlap rug for our front door. It was so simple to make and it looks great against the brick exterior. I absolutely LOVE it and I hope you do too! :)
