I love getting crafty with burlap, so when the folks at BurlapFabric.com offered to send me a box of burlap to play with, I couldn’t say no! They sent me a big box with a roll of new burlap, a few repurposed burlap coffee bags (a green coffee bean even fell out of one!), and a roll of jute webbing, which I was particularly excited about.
I’ve been looking for an eco-friendly alternative to polyester or cotton webbing for ages! The webbing they sent was very wide – 3 1/2″ – but it was easy as pie to make that work for the bag I wanted to make. You can see how, along with all the instructions for making a beach tote from a coffee sack, below!
