This inexpensive jute bag gets an upgrade with pretty floral fabric and vintage lace. It’s perfect for errands, or even a pool/beach bag!
It’s Linda here, from burlap+blue, with a fun jute tote DIY project for you! I’ve got good news too – you don’t know how to sew to accomplish it.
Yep, you’re going to use your best friend Fabric Mod Podge to do add fabric to a jute bag. While some people might like jute on their own, I’m not a big fan.
I really felt like this bag needed a makeover and that I had just the fabric and trim to do it. This is very durable, and you aren’t going to believe how easy it is. Keep reading to get the how-to.
Decorate a Jute Bag
- Fabric Mod Podge
- Jute Tote (I found mine at Hobby Lobby)
- Fabric and/or Lace
- Foam Brush
This is the perfect project for thrifted or inexpensive pieces. This technique would also work well on cosmetic cases, wine bags, and even clutches or wallets!
Step 2: Using your Mod Podge, decoupage your fabric to your bag, and let it dry completely. When I was getting ready to create this project, I realized my Fabric Mod Podge had dried up (oh no!), so I used my Matte Mod Podge and honestly didn’t have any issues.
I wanted the fabric to feel like fabric and not be too stiff, so I decided not to Mod Podge over top of the fabric and lace. This is just personal preference though; you can go either way!
Thank you so much for letting me share with you all today! You can find lots of other tutorials and inspiration on my blog! Have a lovely day!
