According to Wikipedia, “Osnaburg was a coarse type of plain textile fabric, named for the city of Osnabrück . Originally made from flax yarns, it has been made from either flax, tow or jute yarns”. I recently bought some Osnaburg from Lincraft and have enjoyed using it today in a couple of projects. It is so soft to work with, doesn’t crush like linen, and is cheaper – what’s not to like!
First up I made this little basket out of some treasured scraps. I think it is destined to be the first of many – it was fun and quick to make! I based it on a great tutorial I found here.
I finally cut in to my Mollybirds fabric to create a little purse (with a boxed bottom) using a flexi frame closure that I purchased at a recent craft show. I have another flexi frame so will probably make a sun glasses case with it.
Have a great week!
