There are so many things you can do with burlap. It's natural, flexible, holds its shape and just a pleasure to work with. I decided to make a container for various craft supplies and used the same technique I shared with you just recently here.
You will need:
cotton or linen for lining
Before you start, I recommend washing your burlap sack - it gets nice and soft then.
1. Determine how big you want your container to be. Multiply the diameter by 3.14 and that will be your circumference - that's how wide your rectangular should be. Then determine the desired height of your container and add half of the diameter (radius) and add one inch for stitching. Mine was about 27" by 16". I used interface but burlap is quite stiff so feel free to skip this. Cut your lining to be the same size.
2. Sew side seams.
3. Place this side seam in the center.
4. Sew the bottom so it looks like brown paper bag. For more detailed instructions refer to my previous post here.
