Woven Bags

A fun weaving project - I used the same warp to make 2 little bags - one from leftover neutral wool and the other from leftover handspun. They are very thick and squooshy due to the tight weft-faced weaving - no need for liner at all.

Pattern: Pleasing Proportions Bag from Weaving Made Easy by Liz Gipson
Yarn: Leftover Handspun from these hats and Leftover natural colors of wool (I think Knit Picks Peruvian)
Size: Handspun bag 6" X 8"; Natural Bag 7.75" X 8.5"
Weaving: Sett 4 epi (using 12 dent heddle); 30- 34 ppi; 32 warp ends for larger bag, 26 warp ends for handspun (used the same warp for both bags, but just cut off 6 of them before starting 2nd bag.
For anyone more curious, click here to see how I finished the top of each bag.

Handspun bag happens to fit my Kindle perfectly :)

A close up of the straps - I used some suede leather cord (mixed with yarn) in the braid for stability - I LOVE the look of these braided straps!

Fun just to do something totally different!
