So the tester Mila was ready and produced quite interesting wool checker designed fabric. I thought it might be great to turn it into some easy and modern bag, by adding few leather parts over.
Check it out!

After finishing weaving, I started turning it into a bag.
|Process of creating something from treads is quite amazing!|
And finally the bag is here, after attaching few pieces of green and beige leather to create height of bag. Small length of the woven fabric gave me two option : to cut the fabric and create two small bags or keep it as it is and because of the difficult size, try to enlengthen the bag with some leather. So it turned out this way:
One loom, and little imagination...Easy and fun family craft!
It's a long way for me to learn and experiment on this loom. It has much more options in creating patterns and designs on the woven fabric. There are some great books to learn all this as I already explored it last year when I got my first two shaft loom. This is huge improvement!
Getting to library!
I listed all the great books that helped me to learn some of the basic processes of weaving and working with looms. I also have in mind to create couple of new pages on this blog to help people with weaving and other crafting projects. At least some basic stuff!
