Recycling decoration: canvas bags as cushions

Summer is coming and for many of us it's time to check the bags of past years. The truth is that in my case, over the years I have joined countless canvas bags of those squares that are almost the size of a sheet. There are many that I don't use them since my student days and there are others who have found a corner in my house to store bags or bread.

When I saw this idea, I loved it because I found a place for all those bags I don't want to go out with me anymore (let's be honest, this summer they take the straw bags, so nanay of the canvas ones). What the owner of this room did was fill them with cushion material, either foam rubber or foam directly and sew the end. The result is an original and highly resistant cushion.

The only one job what I see is the subject of hide the handles. You can cut them, sew them inside (it is not an option if you have put zippers) or leave them in the air to transport cushions, if someone is dedicated to that.

In addition, if you do not like the bags you have at home, surely in stores near your home they sell for very cheap prices some with an original decoration. In fact, in many stores they are replacing the typical plastic bags For these bags and we do not always feel comfortable to bring them to the street in a casual way if we do not go shopping. What are you waiting for?
