Hello Monday and hello to something new! I have been thinking about creating a weekly link up for some time. I supposed now is a perfect time to start. I hope you'll join me and link up your handmade projects.
Whenever I am not quilting, I like to whip up something small that I can finish quickly. Usually those end up being zippered pouches or a small bag. I was wanting to try out some burlap bags and found some of these cute polka dot burlap prints to use.
I have to say that it seems like this burlap stretches in every direction. The best thing to do is spray starch the fabric and press with a pressing cloth placed over the burlap to get the burlap stiff enough to work with. I do love zippered pouches to keep things organized but it's always a fun idea to use up scraps and have the option of using the pouch as a wristlet.
Here's some guidelines for linking up:
- grab the Maker's Monday button and place in your post so others know where to join in the fun.
- link directly to your post in the linky tool.
- share any sewing or quilting related projects you've made.
- visit fellow makers.
