I’ve been on a weaving kick lately, which is unsurprising since it’s still fairly new to me. I’ve got plenty of scarves already and I really don’t need any more so I’ve just been weaving up fabric. And with it, I made a couple of bags.

The fabric was made with a ten dent heddle. The warp is Brown Sheep from a gigantic cone and the warp is a grey wool/nylon blend recycled from a thrift store sweater.

The lining is some mystery fiber fabric I bought at the thrift store a while ago. This is currently housing some shark mittens because they seriously never end.

This one was woven on a six dent heddle. Warp is some recycled cotton/linen blend and the weft is a skein of Wool-Ease I got at a thrift. Much thicker fabric, but.excellent way to use up Wool-Ease. I will definitely be doing it again.

The lining is the same as the first one.

The weaving on the second bag I made just a little too long for a good draw string bag, so I cut off the excess and made this little pouch:

No closures or anything. And the lining fabric is the same.

Not sure what I’ll use it for. Maybe I’ll sew a loop to the back and use it as a belt bag.

I’m thinking of getting into the knitting bag trade through my etsy shop with these woven numbers. What do you guys think? Would people be interested? I’d have to make a bunch more before I could update the shop anyway.

As for knitting: I’ve been doing it. I’ve finished or almost finished a couple of things, but they’re costume parts for Katsucon and I want until they’re finished and I have pictures of the costumes before I show them off. And there’s mittens, always.
