Burlap rice bag, iron-on vinyl, denim, home dec fabric, a zipper
What was your inspiration?
I've seen a lot of totes made from burlap bags. I had this rice bag and two coffee bags but hesitated because burlap is rough. It finally came to me - fuse some iron-on vinyl on the burlap to soften it. Viola!
What are you most proud of?
It all came together so well. But I was happy that the vinyl fused to the burlap. I wasn't sure if it would work.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
