recycle and winners

I like to recycle things, do you?  I have shown you my pot scrubbers from plastic onion/orange bags before and here are a couple I made today:

I have a burlap bag that had pinto beans inside.  Of course, I couldn't throw it away and as popular as burlap pillows are these days, that just doesn't interest me.  Do you have any suggestions on what I can do with this 17" X 27" piece of burlap?  We often entertain outside(except in this exceptionally hot weather) and I was thinking maybe a table topper or runner. 

I have randomly picked the winners for my blog anniversary giveaway:

Thanks again for the giveaway Elizabeth!

I love the potscrubbers - I'll check out your previous post - what a great idea!

Your idea of a table topper is great! My only other thought is that I have a cute shoulder bag made out of upcycled rice bags from Vietnam (I didn't make it, obviously). I get a lot of comments/compliments on it - but not sure if that's your bag. (heh - I'm so punny)
