A while ago, I bought this bright red burlap. It is sort of between brick red and fire-engine red. It is interwoven with gold strands; they look like that kind of plastic-y "icicles" stuff you throw on the tree at Christmas, only shiny gold. It was obviously a Christmas- themed thing. I got it on sale for some fraction of a dollar per yard, and I got some 5 yards or so. I figured to myself, why not? It's cheap enough- and when you need burlap, not much else will do.
Does anybody have any ideas on what things I could do with it? Back
braided rugs, maybe? Use it to hook rugs with? (although maybe that
would be too fine for hooking?) I have no idea. At the store they said
it was displayed with some sort of kit or pattern for making
placemats, but that doesn't thrill me. Any ideas?
