These are adorable and I an’t wait to make some. My question is about stretching out of shape once there is some weight inside. Is this a problem at all?
Achsah Anil says
I’m pretty sure most of these bags will stretch out of shape if you put heavy or oddly shaped items in them ( like a laptop Or fruits). I would add a lining of canvas cloth (or any type type of cloth) on the inside. This helps keep the bags shape from getting stretched out
Becki Pate says
I have the same question. Do you have to line them?
Linda Diamond says
