We have a tradition of going to the neighbors the week before Christmas with a bottle of wine. This year I decided to construct a small bag from some fabric I wove on my Schact Flip rigid heddle. Fast and I think it turned out okay
It’s so pretty.
I like the houndstooth pattern. Also, what a nice tradition! Did they appreciate it?
That is actually another gift…one that can be reused for other things…so lovely…the colors are fun as well.
That is really cool! I love reusable gift wraps/bags
Beautiful! And not just because it is blue… so very nicely done.
wait. did you weave the material for the bag? WHHHHAATTTT? that wine bag is now GOLD, my friend!
Welcome @MullersLaneFarm! You did such an awesome job. I really like the colors.
Yes, both the wine and the bag.
Love this! Houndstooth is one of my all-time favorites. And I am just in awe of people who not only weave, but then also make something useful out of it.
What a great tradition, and the bag is certainly a great addition for the gift
I love that you’re so nonchalant. Just whipped these up fast for a gift. Lol. It looks incredible and like it would take forever. You made your own fabric! That’s next level in my book!
Yes it can!
I only basted the bag together so it can be easily taken apart to be used as a short scarf or table runner!
I love houndstooth also. I wove a houndstooth scarf for my oldest son from my handspun for Christmas. Let me see if I can dig up pictures.
This weaving is only on a rigid heddle but I’m dicovering just how much can be done with it using pick up sticks. The folks using 3-16 heddles are the ones that blow my mind!!!
LOL, honestly, this was whipped up in just a couple hours. Thank you though!
