coffee bags and potholders
I'm doing this in two messages in case the pics are too big for dial up folks all at once. I emptied one of those foil coffee bags and was thinking about how sturdy it is and should be reusable for something. I put water in it to make sure it held water and of course it does. But so what, its too flimsy to give away flowers in for instance. Then I remembered that I had this pretty raku vase a friend made for me years ago that leaks so I can't use it for flowers. I'd tried putting things inside, but its irregularly shaped and things similar in size didn't fit right. The coffee bag works great and conforms to the funny shape onthe inside. I almost want to buy flowers to try it out.
Could put lots of them in a basket to gather flowers... They are light weight. Anything thats not water proof that a coffee bag can be squished into can be a vase.
