I started out warping for a project to weave material for a couple bags.  Well, it didn't work out for that.  I realized that the material was way too thin.  But it was perfect for kitchen towels so here they are.  We live in a log cabin and they are really the right texture and color for our kitchen.  They are stiped, two shades of brown and some orange added randomly.

Here is a photo of my loom.  I warped it this weekend, trying for material for bags again.  It is warped in forest green 3/2 cotton and the weft is 5/8 inch cotton stripes in forest green and random bright stripes of yellow, orange, lime green, and red...so far.  Maybe will add some blue and other shades of solid color stipes.  I love how fast this is going.  Looks like it is the right weight for bags.

I am feeling very jealous, what a gorgeous loom. And I want to be in a cabin. Sigh.

Lovely work, good luck with bag material, report back to us.

I just cut the three pieces off the loom and serged the edges.  Here they are:

Now they are off to the be washed. They are 20 inches by 27 inches before washing.

The first was random stripes, the second was dark green warp and medium green weft of cloth, and the last was the medium green on each end with dark green in the center (so the bottom of the bag will be the dark green).
