What a sweet idea. And the red print is wonderful.
Curious now, what fabric are you going to use for the base and what fabric for the bow?
Because this particular burlap has an open weave, I'll back it with the khaki (which has enough weight to not need interfacing). The red will be the interior lining; it's the recipients favourite colour and a little surprise for her.
The bow will be made of unlined burlap, and the strap is cut from the khaki lining only because that burlap is itchy!
24 feet long? I can't even begin to understand how you managed that! I've been commissioned by a wedding "barn" to create table runners for them and I'm fussing because they are 8 feet long! Any hints?
Ooh, work slowly and with a team. It's the only way we got the pinning done.
I love the clutch!
I once made 6 burlap tablecloths for a party, and I cut and sewed them outside...weather was perfect for sewing...and kept the burlap "dust" outside.
Oh boy, the lint is brutal. I've got a fine coating of it over everything, and probably consumed a fair amount from the iced coffee I was drinking while I sewed -- yuck! I'm definitely going to spend some time cleaning out my sewing machine this afternoon.
Such a cute clutch! Love the pop of red lining and red zipper. Nice touch! I live by using those lint rollers when I work with burlap. Too bad you can't use it in your throat!
This is such a cute clutch. I've seen such pretty things made with burlap lately. I love the contrast of the burlap with softer fabrics.
