Canvas!

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.

    Hey Susan! I love the way your mind works…the way you are always looking at the world around you and seeing how you can make it brighter, more fun, mix things up and change the look of a room, clothes, house, a life. I get excited just reading you grow effusive about your latest passion or discovery or project! lol I always smile while I’m reading, ‘cuz I keep getting the sense in my head that “This is all SO Susan!!”. Very cool sister…I now have a huge re-appreciation for all things canvas, and I am sure I will be noticing things all around me that I never saw before. The canvas pillows you made are adorable! I am so glad I am following your blog…I love your creativity and energy! Keep it up sister! God bless you as you bless all of us….
