Coffee Bean Sack Upcycled Into Beautiful Bag

A shopping bag made from hessian coffee bean sacks and the bag handles upcycled from old bags I used the coffee sacks because I find them visually charming and saves them from ending up in the landfill.
Two pieces of 45 x 45 cm of sack material were cut out hemmed to avoid fraying and then sewn together to make the bags main body, I the. Added the handles which were taken from an old bag I no longer used it was then top stitched onto the bag for strength, bags can be made in all sizes and shapes and are great fun to make for gifts.

I have three questions. Do you sell these? If you don’t, where can I get the bags? And do they smell wonderfully like coffee? Love them – you are one sharp recycler! Maybe you could think about an ETSY business with them.
