One of my favorite fabrics is canvas. It’s sturdy and has a utility look to it, but versatile enough to be fashionable! It makes great tote bags, purses, aprons and decorative throw pillows. I love its grainy appearance and the slightly rough texture. When comes summertime (when I have a little break in my schedule), I plan on adding some canvas products to my Etsy lineup. That reminds me, I need to make a new canvas purse for myself to replace my small black crocheted “The Sak” purse I’ve been sporting for 10+ years… What can I say? I’m a simple girl.
Here’s a photo of some pillows I made; the ones with the writing and the typewriter image are canvas pillows (with ironed-on images.)
Here’s a funky tote bag I made with Marie Jacobi’s Map of Berlin fabric.
And a custom lunch bag I made for a friend.
Here are a few other awesome canvas products I found online!
I love canvas!
