Bee happy ........ make a bag cushion

The product of the week at Bee happy home and accessories is this cute Bee hessian bag.
It is so easy to make a cushion out of a bag and this bag is perfect for the French style.

Cut the handles off.
If you have matching fabric you can stitch a panel in one side which folds over the cushion pad.
Cut both handles in half and measure and stitch 2 either side of the bag.
Tie the handles to make bows on top and to keep the cushion pad inside.
You could always leave the fabric panel off or use matching or co-ordinating ribbon for the ties instead of the using the handles to introduce spots or stripes.
Which room in your house would this look good in?

  3. Brilliant idea ... I would never have thought of doing that! M x

  4. Terrific idea, Deb! Might also make a good seat cushion, using the ties around rungs of chair.

    Have a great day,
