For my weaving class (101) I had to turn three my samples into finished pieces, and create a finished final project. Since I am pretty broke this year, and have a thing about making functional crafts, I decided to make little bags/pouches out of my samples. So here are two of them. (The other two were given as gifts and I forgot to take pictures):





I feel that I need to add the fact that the pictures were taking with my camera phone, and aren't very good. No matter what I did, the vibrancy of the colors was washed out. (This remains true for every following picture as well)

This is my final project. It was supposed to be a backpack for school. However, the side strap I wove turned out to be far too wide. I accounted for shrinkage that turned out to be not even 1/4 of an inch. So...I ended up with a bag and a scarf. I alternated black and white for the warp, and used mercerized cotton for the weft.


The tasseled fringe took hours.





This is just a scarf I wove my best friend for Xmas. It's folded up and ready to be wrapped here.

They look wonderful! I've always had an appreciation for weaving, and have wanted to try, but haven't ever gotten into the class at my community college. Sad I'll keep trying though, tyour work look fantastic!

my very compliments for that bunch of useful things you did with your handwoven cloth. they are very beautiful and your use of twills and zig-zag weaving is never baroque, it's so smooth and plain of harmony.

keep weaving!
