Paper bag fabric and fiber fest

I love knitting and needle felting, but feel pretty inept with a sewing machine. Yet I love quilts, and often make them out of paper. I’m always interested in projects that use paper for processes more usually associated with fabric and fiber. Here are a few ideas that use brown paper bags as a base for textile and fiber crafts.
