You are my Nemesis...

Burlap...I don't like you...I have issues with you...why can't you be easy and joyful to sew with like my Amy Butler or Heather Bailey fabric? It could be this specific burlap (not sure?) It was given to me by my gf Amber, that sweetie (seriously, I do like burlap...and I thank you for it!). It was just very unruly...if you get my drift. It seemed to unravel, shift, and stretch whichever way I tried to sew it. My measurement's got off due to the changing sizes of the pieces I was working with, which in turn made my lining off. I finally threw up my hands in defeat, continued to sew, and well...it's a very abstract, original, eclectic bag. Hmmm...I wonder if anyone else has the same probs as me when sewing with this stuff? Probably not...I imagine it's just me and my abstract way of sewing, LOL! That's ok...I seem to always come out with something unique...here she is, in all her glory...

I understand your pain but your bag turned out beautiful!
And yes...there are so many types of burlap but most coffee bags are a bit difficult to sew. The weave is just so loose.
