Canvas is quite an interesting material to work with. It is extremely tough and yet is behaves very nicely with the sewing machine. Perhaps I should go in to production and make painted deckchairs!! I am quite pleased with this folder, and already I'm finding it useful. I have added a couple of pockets so have been able to put samples of labels, bags etc inside. I have also inserted my painted folders . But above all - I really loved making it - so I'm sure I'll be doing more.
