Burlap Love

Perhaps you remember this sweet bag I made for Mother's Day. 
 I have to admit...I can't get enough burlap.  I am planning to sew a few Kindle/Nook cases as christmas gifts and want the main fabric to be burlap.
I'll be sure to post pictures of them when the project gets underway. 

Some people think that burlap is difficult to cut and sew.  Well, yes ...and no. Burlap is great for a rustic look and is very easy to cut and work into large projects.  The raveling is difficult to manage on small detailed projects, though.  To solve this issue, I simply serge or zig zag around the edges of each indivdual piece once it is cut out.  Raveling problem solved! 

Anyway, thought I would send you some burlap inspiration today!
