Small Bags

So what do you do with all the small pieces of  handwoven fabric from sampling and weaving off a warp? Small bags with and without a strap are one possibility.

  1. I love the pattern and the strap on the very first one–did you weave the strap, too??

  3. I like your idea! I do have lots of samples and scraps, but haven’t come up with a satisfactory use for all of them. In the back of my mind, I envision something like your bags, or a journal cover…Food for thought over a cup of hot cocoa.

    • Katy, Sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you. The fabric had the warp threaded for a rep weave design. In rep though you have a thick weft followed by a thin weft tread led in opposites. This piece though did not have the thin wefts only thick wefts resulting in the large areas of floating warp yarns.
