My 1st sew with Kraft-tex
I brought a roll of this new fabric called Kraft-Tex about 2 years ago but just couldn't bring myself to use it. I had to buy it from Germany as it was not rely heard of here in the UK.
It is a funny sort of fabric, it is a card/leather feel that can be washed and ironed like fabric but will crease up to give the look of leather.
I decided as it was becoming more used and available here http://www.amazon.co.uk/Kraft-Tex-Roll-Natural-Publishing/dp/1607057506 to give it a go and sew a shopping bag as I now have the black Kraft-Tex too :)
I found out that it is what is used to make the labels on Levi jeans :)
Next on my list to try is cork fabric, I have ordered some but it has to come from Portugal so have to wait a little while I will post more on that when it does arrive :)
Now off to use some more Kraft-Tex.
P.S. I even did some fancy embroidery stitches on the outer pockets that are either side of the bag handles :)
