The folks at BurlapFabric.com sent me a bit box of their burlap to craft with, and it sat, open, on my desk for a few days before I was able to get to it. In that time, I had to shoo one of my cats away from the thing countless time. I mean, she was obsessed! When I was working on making a grocery tote from one of the burlap sacks, she kept trying to nap on the pieces when I turned my back. That is when inspiration struck: clearly, I needed to make her a cat bag from one of the other totes they sent.
