It does make the fabric permanently stiff. However, in this application it gives the burlap weight thus giving the bag structure.

How to make a DIY printed burlap bottle bag
Trim to exactly 8 1/2 inches by 14 inches. It can not be larger than 8 1/2″ X 14″.
Download the “Making Spirits Bright” printable. Expand printing tray to 14 inches long. Place burlap into the paper tray. For my printer the burlap is facedown. Set paper size on printer to 8 1/2 X 14 “and print. Isn’t that amazing? It prints like butter! Think of all the things you can make!
Remove the paper backing from the burlap.
Grab your other pice of burlap. If you want the front and back to be the same weight, iron WonderUnder to your second piece of burlap. I didn’t find it necessary.
Stitch across the corner.
Repeat on other bottom corner of the bag.
You will have the perfect pleat in the bottom of the bag.
Put in your bottle!
Tie back with twine and embellish with some greens!
