Waxed Canvas

The past few nights I've been sewing with waxed canvas. It's thick and stiff and makes me grateful for heavy duty needles. I love the way the wax causes it to mark when scratched. Things were looking pretty smooth until I had to flip the bag right side out. Ooooh! The wrinkles! Instant character.

The wonderful thing about waxed canvas is that it's 100% natural and waterproof.
I've listed these bags in the shop.

Joanna - seriously, your finishing work is stellar. I have my own shop and I have to say you are kicking *** (hindquarter) seriously. Good on you! Who knew topstitching could intimidate strangers?!
