Slouchy satchel bag - new lessons


Remember that gorgeous looking warp from my last post? This is the result! The whole project was woven on the rigid heddle loom with two heddles but different techniques. The bag was woven as a tube so it's completely seamless, and the strap was woven as double weave, providing a firm and sturdy fabric.


A lot of people have commented on the yarn, and rightly so, it is wonderful. It's called Bloom and is available from Bendigo Woollen Mills.

If you're interested in weaving your own bag, the lessons are available on my Weaving Lessons channel and include all the instructions you will need from materials, warping, sewing and finishing. 

I look forward to seeing you there!

The bag looks really lovely, Kelly. You are such a clever little vegemite.
