Free Video: How to Sew with Cork Fabric

May 15, 2017   /   bySara Lawson  / Categories :  Feeds

Cork fabric is absolutely amazing to sew with – the natural cork, sustainably harvested from trees in Portugal, is bonded to cotton/poly blend fabric. It’s great for wallets, bags, and other small accessories. I stock about 80 variesties of cork fabric in my shop!

In this video, I show you different examples of cork fabric. I also discuss what tools are needed to sew with cork, and a few techniques for making straps and accents.

What do you think? Have you tried sewing with cork fabric before?

 

I also wanted to let you know about a bag making contest that my friend, Annie, from Soft and Stable is hosting! I hope you’ll enter!
