The latest Broadstrokes challenge stemmed from a visit to a coffee shop that had some coffee bean hessian sacks on display.  The shop owners had some spares that we divvied up between us last time we met at Mel's.  That same day I bought some of Mel's fabric.  I knew the hessian and her fabrics would work together and they did - a bag was the result
One side had the hessian bag, and I made a tiny sack that I filled with coffee beans
When I was growing up Dad worked at Aroma Coffee and Tea in Redfern.  I used to hang out there during the holidays and I'll always remember clambering over the mountains of sacks stuffed with green beans waiting to be roasted.  So this little sack represents that part of my history.

Mel's fabric makes up the rest of the bag.  I used Nest, Roughing It, and Trunk Culture.

  1. Caught up on your posts - Mel's fabric looks so real - you must be really rather righteous having cleaned, finished, got rid of things - quite cathartic (is the spelling correct) I should image -
