Wine Bags with Driftwood Buttons

Well, here's a first couple ideas on what to make with all the driftwood I pick up on the beach! I love the driftwood buttons! Each piece of driftwood is drilled for either sewing on or knotted. Oh, Oh, now I'm using power tools! The bags are made of burlap. All the internal seams are serged for strength. But, I wanted the final look to remain 'rustic'. Visit Float on Etsy to see more.

Sewing for a reason

Sometimes you sew to sell, sometimes you sew to experiment, and sometimes you just sew for friends because you can. My friend purchased some extra material when buying new great room furniture so that some day she could make some pillows for the couch. Her 'some day' hasn't materialized yet, and, oh what the heck, I have some spare time on this rainy day.
