Do you like cute little bags?  and burlap?  I love them both and had so much fun making this.  because it’s easy and quick and burlap, hello!! I practically bought the whole bolt. so I will be in a serious relationship with my sewing machine for awhile.  I lined it with a solid red because brown and red just look good together.  and it matches my bedroom furniture.

I know you all want to make one too, so here’s how!

What you will need:

Instructions for How To Cut Burlap

1 Piece of burlap

Matching fabric for the lining

Matching binding

Matching ribbon and thread

To start, cut one piece of burlap and one piece of matching lining 14 x 10.

Sew your lining to the burlap.  Sew up both sides and the bottom.  Leave the top open.

Cut your binding 2-1/2 inches in width.  Since the bag is 14 inches long you will need to add one inch to each end of the binding. So your binding will be 16 inches long and 2-1/2 inches in width.

Fold in both edges of the binding 1/2 inch, then iron.  Line up the binding to the raw edge as shown.

Sew in place.  So close to the edge of the binding, because later we are going to run a ribbon underneath the binding.

Now fold your bag together with right sides together.

STOP sewing when you reach the binding as shown below.  You won’t sew over the binding since you will be running your ribbon through the opening.

  3. I love that it’s all lined so beautifully with the seams al enclosed – and it’s not even difficult! (now that you show me how of course) I love the red with the burlap, our living room is cream with red & brown, I love it as a colour combination. Thanks so much for sharing with us.
