I wanted to make a bag that resembled one of those brown paper gift bags that the stores pack your purchases in.
I used burlap for the main part and a coordinating cotton fabric for the handles and front pocket. It has a mitred base and is fully lined in a burnt orange cotton.
All the long edges are sewn down to give it a crisp finish like paper has.

I made it look like a hamper by filling it up with a nice assortment of groceries and gave it to my brother for Christmas.

This is a very lovely bag...simple and functional...the burlap is an unexpected fabric ... is it interfaced or is the two layers enough to make it sturdy--it also looks very foldable to take to the grocery!

Nice job!

Thank you.
I didn't need to interface it as the burlap was fairly sturdy and the lining I used was a thick cotton drill. It folds down nice and flat the way a paper gift bag does.

Thank you.
I love Poppy as well. I purchased a yard and made this bag as well as 2 cushions for my mother in law.
