Beautiful Burlap Blog Hop


     Welcome to the Burlap Hop, if you have come here from Robin's blog you're on the right track, if not head to Jessi's blog and start at the beginning. She is offering an amazing giveaway, the details will be on her blog, but here is a list of what you could win!
1 yard of red 2" burlap ribbon
1 yard of white 2" burlap ribbon
1 yard of mint green 1"
1 yard of 1.5" jute ribbon in natural
1 yard of your choice of colored 3/8" jute ribbon (see her etsy store)
And pick 2 colors of jute twine (see her etsy)
This was my first time working with burlap. Jessi Buehrle was nice enough to send me some. It is such a fun texture to work with. I wish I could have thought of something more creative to do with it, but I ended up making flowers. After making them I couldn't decide what to do with them, so I put magnets on the back (available in my supply shop).  The buttons in the center are also from my shop. I made two flowers by my tried and true method of making long narrow strips, layering ever smaller strips of different material, sewing loosely in and out of the bottom, then gathering. I also attempted to make a rolled flower. I have never had great success making them look the way I'd like them to... Ah well...


The line up for our hop today is:
