See a couple of purses Patty made with the cork.

WI391 Natural Cork with Gold Metallic
Only 6 1/2" Left

We have just one strip left - 6 1/2" x 53".

This is a real and natural Cork fabric with metallic accent. It is not a Cotton Fabric AT ALL. It is backed with PVC or faux leather fabric. The cork is 53" wide.

The cork is overlayed the gold metallic so that some of the gold metallic shows through in the knots of the cork to add a bit of spark and style to the fabric.

It is water and dust repellent, though do not machine wash. However, you can wipe it lightly to clean.

We think this is great to use to make totes, purses, bags, knapsacks. Certainly totes, purses, etc. made from cork will last longer and hold the shape better. Someone was even thinking about using it for placemats. For a placemat you wouldn't even need to add a binding because the raw edge of the cork is clean - haha!

And don't worry this cork will easily fit and sew on your machine, no problem. Cork is soft, pliable, bendable and easy to cut. As someone said "it sews like butter."

Here are some basic sewing tips when working with cork:

• Thread weight preferably a 40 weight Aurifil will work. Or a 50 weight 3-ply such as the Presencia 50 weight thread we carry.
• Sewing machine needle. I've been told, seriously, any needle actually works. But we'd probably recommend a Jeans/Denim needle or even a Mircrotex Sharp - 90/14 or larger.
• Do not use pins - use clips instead such as Wonderclips
• When dealing with seams you can either topstitch or glue them down. Do not use an iron.
• Not necessary, but you might consider using a Teflon or walking foot. The metal foot can cause friction from the heat buildup and could cause problems. But if you sew slowly like me, probably a metal foot is just fine.

Want to find out some more information on how to work with cork - check out this blog written by Toni of the Little British Fabric Shop.

It is expensive. We know it. And we're certainly more than happy to sell you a yard - haha! However, you'll see we're selling the cork in smaller cuts. For example, if you're making a bag or tote - really a Fat Quarter (our cut will be 18" x 26") will be more than enough to do the trick for many patterns.

In fact we think this will be great to use with this Crossbody Cell Phone purse. All you need is one fat quarter of the cork to make this bag.

And with your leftover scraps make a tassel for a key chain, or... Here's a FREE and downloadable pattern to make the Cork Tassel designed by Sew Many Creations.

And just to continue to inspire you - we did find this BarkCloth fabric from Hoffman that looks incredible with the Cork with Gold Metallic.
