What you will need:

Instructions for How To Cut Burlap

1 Piece of burlap

Matching fabric for the lining

Matching binding

Matching ribbon and thread

To start, cut one piece of burlap and one piece of matching lining 14 x 10.

Sew your lining to the burlap. Sew up both sides and the bottom. Leave the top open.

Cut your binding 2-1/2 inches in width. Since the bag is 14 inches long you will need to add one inch to each end of the binding. So your binding will be 16 inches long and 2-1/2 inches in width.

Fold in both edges of the binding 1/2 inch, then iron. Line up the binding to the raw edge as shown.

Fold over and pin in place.

Sew in place. So close to the edge of the binding, because later we are going to run a ribbon underneath the binding.

Now fold your bag together with right sides together.

Sew up the bottom and side.

STOP sewing when you reach the binding as shown below. You won’t sew over the binding since you will be running your ribbon through the opening.

Now turn it right side out.

Thread the end of your ribbon with a safety pin.

Run it through the binding until it comes out at the other end.

Congratulations! You did it! 🙂
