How to Upcycle Coffee Sac Burlap into a Fabric Box

tutorial  |  June 30th 2011  |  0 Comment

WP Greet Box iconHello there! If you are new here, you might want to subscribe to the RSS feed for updates on this topic.

FInished Burlap BoxWhen I read how eco-friendly burlap is, I just had to craft with it. So when a local coffee shop owner practically threw a dozen coffee sacs at me and pleaded with me to take them, I felt like I just robbed a bank. I raced home and started making these burlap fabric boxes.

I have to admit, burlap is a little tricky to work with since it sheds. But once the pieces were cut, they were manageable. Just make sure to have a dust pan ready. Oh, and if the edges fray, save the jute yarn to use as ties for gift wrapping.

Supplies

  • Coffee Sac Burlap (or feed burlap)
  • Lining – cut two inches longer on sides “a” than burlap for folding down the top edges.
  • Fusible web – Which may be eliminated if you’re creative and find other ways to make burlap stiffer.
  • Thread
  • Scissors
  • Lace – optional

Instruction:
Cut burlap, lining, and fusible web in a cross shape in any dimension you want. Make sure all of the sides labeled “1″ are the same and all of the sides labeled “a” are the same. I wouldn’t make the box any taller than six inches high (dimension for sides “a”) as the walls may not be stiff enough for them to hold up. But if you can find ways to keep them stiff, you can make them taller.
