DIY no Sew burlap pillow {grain sacks} NEWBIE party started!

My first DIY no sew burlap pillow project of the year! My FIL,during his last visit here, brought me a few more burlap rice bags he was given.  I did so many useful things with them last year, I thought to myself hmmmm...what can I come up with now.

All supplies on hand as you can see.
I cut the bag to where you can see the entire rice graphic.
then I stuffed it...pinned it, and used liquid stitch in sections...easy iron on process for me.

I used the twin as just a decorative embellishment. Poked small holes in the burlap to tie the twine on top.

It really turned out cute...

Of course with the extra pieces of burlap, I just scattered it here and there.

Then with another extra bag, I just used it on the table for now...

I perhaps will make another pillow.

Then just for the heck of it, I tied some twine around my chairs...
really no rhyme or reason...just because!

so that's what I have been up to today!
How about you?
Let's get this newbie party started!
First one of 2012!!

NEWBIE guidlines:
*Blogging 6 months or less and or less than 100 followers.
*Would love for you to become a new friend of mine as well on google friend connect.
*PLEASE turn off Word verification, makes commenting very difficult, and you do not need it.
Blogger does a great job of deterring spam comments.
*PLEASE visit a few other participants, that is what you are here for! 
*IF you find your link deleted, it is simply because you did not follow my simple guidelines.  
*PLEASE add my link or button to your blog and/or post.
Please limit your links to two per newbie party.

I like those projects with the grain sacks! Good ideas! (wink) I haven't done a darn thing "creatively speaking" this weekend. My kids have been sick with HFM virus even though they're older than usual to get it. So, we've been sitting around watching movies and eating choc chip cookies that I made. It's been a lazy weekend.

Hi Debbie! I just joined up the the newbie linky party and the first time I did it said *ERROR*. Then, I linked up again and now there are TWO! I'm so sorry! I tried to delete one, but can't. My apologies for accidentally adding TWO silver tablescapes. Please take one off!

Nice pillow Debbie!
Sadly, I think this is my last post here as a newbie :( I cannot begin to tell you how much I have appreciated your support and mentoring! I will continue to check you out daily to see what new amazing creation you have come up with. I'll also be joining in on the copycat challenges as it enables me to think outside my comfort zone. It's time this newbie leaves the nest and flies on her own! Wish me luck :) Many hugs!

Love the rice sack pillow! The texture is great and it makes me think of all those 25 lb rice bags that my parents just tossed throughout my childhood that should have been saved for crafting! ;-) Thanks for sharing.

I love the rustic look of the grain saks. I have a few. I also have an antique flour sak that was in my family. My Dad's Auntie and Uncle owned and operated a bakery in Long Beach CA and I had one of the flour saks matted and framed. I need to redo it though, because my colors are now different. Happy New Years kiddo!
