Why did you choose this?
Can you use this as a curtain? I am looking for my kitchen! Thanks
BEST ANSWER: You could, but I would probably cut it apart and use the back panel to add to each side making it wider. Otherwise it isn't very wide unless you have a skinny window. Another way to use it would be to cut it down the middle on the back panel and then hem a rod pocket across the whole thing? Good luck.
Where is the drawstring on the bag? I would like to put this over a chair.
BEST ANSWER: The opening is at the top. So you would have to open the bottom and close the top in order to put over a chair back.
BEST ANSWER: I soaked mine in hot water in the tub in case the printing ran....it didn't. So I would say it is washable. But washing burlap bags in your washer should be done with them enclosed in a washing bag or something because they release a lot of fibers which can cause issues with your washer drain. Same thing if you put them in the dryer....use a bag.
What is the height of the design from top to bottom?
BEST ANSWER: 15&1/2" top to bottom of printing.
Is the opening at the top or bottom as pictured?
BEST ANSWER: It's at the top.
Will the print wash out or fade if/when i wash the sack?
How much is the postage?
BEST ANSWER: Standard shipping is currently free for orders $50 and over to the contiguous United States. Orders under $50 have a flat rate shipping fee of $7.49.
To view international shipping rates, add the desired items to your cart and proceed to the checkout process. In the Shipping Information section, check the box that says "International Order?". This will calculate shipping rates for you once the shipping address is entered in the form.
Does anyone know if the width of these sacks total 18" or just when lying flat, so if i cut the sack to fit a chair to recover I will have 36" in width to work with?
BEST ANSWER: When laying flat the width is approximately 18".
This is a bag that can be opened correct? I want to use to cover chair pads but it's not quite wide enough so would have to open.
BEST ANSWER: Yes, that would work.
How stiff is the burlap? Would they pleat/drape nicely for window valances?
BEST ANSWER: It's not real stiff, it should hang ok especially if you cut it to make it a single piece of fabric.
Do you have other designs? I’m looking to frame 3 grain sacks on a large wall.
When opened up, what's the diameter of the opening? I assume the width of 18 inches is when it's lying flat?
Will this work as upholstery fabric? I need a rather heavy weight for a sling-style antique spring-rocker chair...there’s no board or cushion for supporting in either the seat or back, right now it’s a fabric sandwich with padding sewn into the seat.
Grain Sack turned pillow
I was super excited to get these and make them into pillows for my front porch. I love a touch of French Country, these were perfect! I put in an 18" pillow form, folded down the top and stitched down the sides to secure. No cutting necessary.

Love these! I have several projects planned...pillows and covering a chair back among them. I washed in warm water and dried them to soften slightly and pre-shrink.

French replica bag
I used this bag as a gift bag for 3 different types of tablecloths I made for a gift. The recipient can use it to store her linens or hang it as a piece of artwork. Great item.
