Coffee Sack Ideas {Lavender Hearts}

Does lavender and coffee go together? It does now!

I am seeing stuffed hearts everywhere right now. I love how cute they are. I have seen paper, vintage fabric, pillows and mod podge hearts. I haven't seen any coffee sack ideas though. I purchased a lot of coffee sacks awhile back and I have been enjoying new coffee sack ideas ever since,

Some coffee sack ideas I have made are, a lined display table and a lined cooler, to name a few. I love dreaming up different things to do with them. They have the neatest prints, textures and colors.

I used a scrap piece I have saved. This one had an Aqua Stripe!

It has a farmhouse feel.

I love the raw edges. I stuffed it with Lavender buds and hand stitched the word "Love" on it.

It is so sweet. I just traced a heart and cut two piece from my scrap and sewed together leaving ends to fray. I stuffed with lavender and sewed the remainder closed. I wrote love on top as a pattern to stitch by. It is a simple project that is probably one of my favorites.

Sometimes simple is better.

There is also something about small things....It is a big package of love.

Which is fitting for anytime but Valentine's Day is just around the corner. So someone is getting a surprise!

Have any other Coffee Sack Ideas?
I would love to know!

Very cute. I'm loving the non traditional colors of hearts this year. Your love embroidery was a wonderful addition.
