Tips for sewing with canvas
Canvas is a heavy and durable fabric which makes it perfect for sewing projects like home decor, bags and accessories or other decorative projects. With the right tools and techniques and a few simple tips for sewing with canvas, you can create sturdy, chic tote bags or clutches for yourself or friends, if you’re looking for a gift idea. Or you can redecorate your home with a few simple decorative canvas pillows!
I’ve learnt these tips the hard way, when I made myself a rounded top canvas bag using (I’ll be sharing the tutorial and pattern very soon) and also in this tutorial for Corded Handles for Bags where I used this canvas fabric. It didn’t occur to me that canvas is a totally different type of fabric and I need a little prepping in advance so making the rounded top bag took way longer than I expected. Rookie mistake!
So if you plan to sew with canvas soon, better take a few moments and get yourself prepared with these tips, before starting to work on your project. It makes a huge difference!
