1  Little Bags in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by mountain_waif on: August 19, 2013 09:59:44 PM
I finished my last sewing project for awhile.  Other things to do...we are moving in a month or two.  
I made six small belt loop bags.  The top  two are for my grandson's to hold their cub scout knives, etc.  And the bottom four are diabetes pump bags for my grandson.  They all have belt loops on the back of them.  The embroidery was done on my embroidery machine.  They are lightly quilted.

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).

6  Couple more kitchen towels in Weaving: Completed Projects by mountain_waif on: June 30, 2008 07:24:01 AM
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 was so surprised to see your purse.  It looks fantastic!

I started making two out of some left over yarn...only I lost interest.  I think I was really disappointed that they came out kinda small.  I also bought some material to line them with.  Hope I get inspired to finish them.  I actually forgot where I had put them.  

I got the magazine at Michael's Arts & Crafts.

Here are the two unfinished purses ready to be joined to the side not shown in the picture but is actually underneath them.

Here are my completed scarves.  I am very happy with them all.

Now...on to kitchen towels.....I bought warp (4.8/2 of both brown and orange and doubled 8/2 natural cottons) and weft (natural cotton flake 3.5/1 doubled).  Next I decided that I want to make four towels and make them striped.  So I got my warping board out and started to warp the loom only to discover that I do not have enough heddles.  So this morning I ordered 300 more texsolv heddles.  Now I have to wait to put them on the loom and hope that I can add the heddles to each harness with the center section that I have already warped kept in tact.  Wish me luck....I just know it can be done if I am careful.  So weaving is put on hold until my order for heddles arrives.

Now what is new for you.  What is working and what is not?  What are you working on now and planning to do next?   Would love to hear all about it!!!
