Messenger Bag Recycled from Coffee Sack

Project Description

What are you most proud of? The extra little details and the extra sewing for more strength. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I get a little crazy when I start a design, and I would advise someone starting to just go with the flow of how you feel and what you want to put into it. The main thing is having fun. Thank you. :) LB~

What you will need

  • burlap coffee sack
  • cotton fabric
  • hard plastic slider
  • large metal ring

Q&A with EllbeeCreations

That's beautiful! I've tried to make a burlap bag and i have problems with my needle snagging? How did you do yours? Awesome job!!!! Love it!
EllbeeCreations answered:
Thank you for your comment.:) I too had problems with the needle snagging but I would just keep trying by moving the side wheel by hand until the needle went through. The side with the large ring was actually sewn by hand because it was too thick for my machine. :)
