Valentine Burlap Treat Bags {Tutorial}

I had some leftover Burlap from the Fall Table Runner I made last year {find that tutorial here} so I decide to make use of my new Martha Stewart Stencils and some Valentine fabric I had leftover from this Valentine Wreath last year!

I absolutely LOVE the way they turned out!  I think I may give these to some ladies I visit each month.

Here are the supplies you will need:

-7 x 8 inch pieces of burlap

-1 x 7 inch pieces of fabric for the ruffles





-Bakers twine

I just ripped my 1 x 7 inch strips.  If you need a cool trick for making ruffles on your machine, click here.  Learning this trick has seriously changed my life:)

After the ruffles are made, sew them onto the 7 x 8 inch piece of burlap.  I sewed on 2.  

After you have finished sewing on the ruffles, fold your burlap width wise, and sew the edges together.

Next, turn right side out using a chop stick to push the corners out {carefully}.

I Loved these Martha Stewart Stencils!  They have adhesive on the back.  It was so much easier to use knowing it wasn't going to slide around!

The Stenciling was really easy, and I used fusible webbing to adhere the felt heart on the left treat bag.  I also sewed a little piece of ribbon to the bottom of the left treat bag. 

I love the cute touch of the bakers twine for closing the top!  

These didn't take hardly any time at all to make.  I want to make a ton, because they are just so fun to make:)
