Brainstorm Help Please with Coffee Bean Bag


This is just too cool a thing to throw out. It came as part of the packaging material in a delivery of coffee I received from my coffeephile brother and his family for my birthday.


It's approximately three feet tall by 2 feet 4 inches wide. What can I do with it?? Please post your ideas or links in the comments.

That would be great gift wrap for a coffee-themed wedding or house-warming gift.

I have three ideas:

1. Stretch it and hang it - wall art.
2. Line it and stuff it - pillow.
3. Bleach it and wash it - dishtowel.

What's it made of? My grandmas used to aprons from flour sacks (Google "flour sack apron" for patterns). If it's burlap or something scratchy, maybe use it for carting around balls and sports equipment?
Let us know what you end up doing with it.

Is it strong enough to make a reusable shopping bag out of it?

These are great ideas! It is rather scratchy, more tightly woven than I thought at first glance, too. I bet it could be made into a couple shopping bags--it's too big to be just one bag--I'd never be able to lift it. :)

How about adding two straps to it to make a little backpack/purse thing.
