ikea tea towels + burlap coffee sack = chair cushion

Remember when I said.... I had lots of burlap projects....  The cushions are burlap coffee bags I picked up for free, the ruffle is a .49 cent Ikea tea towel. I had the brainstorm to make the ruffle from the tea towel because I love the red stripe through the tea towel.... and the price of vintage linen with the red stripe is way too many $$$ for a fun project. I change things quickly around the blue cottage - did not want to make this a costly project.

Finished the dining chair project... Each chair cushion is different!










Love it? 
Happy Friday!!

Hi Valarie! I have some burlap sacks that I had planned on using to cover some seat cushions, but ... I want to protect them from spills. I don't know if I should use some type of fabric protector, Scotchguard, Mod Podge for fabric? I know if you try to wash or clean/wipe, the colors will fade, run, bleed. What do you suggest? Love your cushions! ~ Kirsten
