SUPER Cute Erin!
Great video and tutorial. What is the hand held “iron” you are using?
Donna Bowman says
LOVED this video and ordered one of those ribbon straighteners. Can’t wait to get it and some Heat N Bond and try this!! Thanks for the inspiration!
Kathy V. says
What is the hand-held tool you’re using? What’s the name brand and where can one be purchased? Very clever idea!
Dedi W says
where did you get yours…I bought one too..I found mine on Ebay…that was the only place I could find….
Dedi W says
Your video made me “run out” ok immediately start searching for the Pebbles Ribbon Iron apparently Ebay is the only place they are found now…?? But thanks for the inspiration…I buy tons of fabric and burlap remnants for “just in case” ideas and LOVE THIS ONE…
Cute bags! Like your fabric and design. Until I used heat ‘n bond on my burlap, usually whatever I die-cut frayed. That is an invaluable tip to pass along to your viewers. Thanks for the video. 🙂

Fabulously simple idea, I wonder if one of those laminator machines could be used in some way to make more delicate projects…..
very cute project, love that you can do burlap too, that iron is neat, so nice not to have to get out a board and the iron 🙂
