go natural with canvas and burlap bags plus a {free} iron on transfer download

Our cotton canvas  and burlap  bags are a natural choice if you are looking for a cloth bag to package your products or use as a favor for your wedding or special event.

I love that you can embellish these bags so easily and in so many ways. Depending on the look you are after, it is possible to sew, paint or stamp on these bags. You can even add iron on transfers!

Keep in mind that iron on transfers or stamp designs with lots of detail will work best on the canvas bags. The burlap bags have a very open weave and work best with designs that are bold and solid and they will give you a worn or aged look similar to the type on the linen pillow in my first picture.
You can use stamps on the canvas bags and our canvas ribbons (as seen above) using permanent inks and clear stamps. I prefer the clear stamps so that you can see where you are stamping the image. There is an assortment of clear stamps, acrylic blocks for clear stamps and permanent inks in the Creative Studio at the Toronto store.
Fabric flowers are a great way to decorate both the burlap bags and the cotton bags.

If you are looking for more burlap ideas for your wedding or special event, check out my "burlap love" Pinterest board for inspiration.

I created the "bee happy" iron on design for one of my workshops. If you would like to use my design in one of your personal projects I have added it as a download.

You can download the art here. Please remember that you will have to reverse the art before you print it on the iron on transfer sheet.

Bee Happy!
