How to Cut Burlap

Burlap is a popular choice for all different kinds of crafts, but it can be a tricky material to work with. It’s important to cut it a certain way so that it won’t be uneven and unravel. If you think you can lay it out flat and just start cutting it with scissors in a straight line, think again. Just a slight cut off to either side can cause threads to start to unravel and create a mess.
