Handwoven Bag Created for ANWG's History Group
This project was created for the Association of Northwest Weavers Guild history study group. This year we focused on creating any finished project from a Robin and Russ draft. I wanted to weave a bag which looked like something one of James Garner's lady friends would carry in an episode of The Rockford Files and also use mostly materials already in my studio. I used Venne 20/2 mercerized cotton in Gold, Redwood and Havanna for the warp and handspun eri and tussar silk from "spinning yarns weaving tales" for the weft. The tote handles are from FABSCRAP (a great resource for reused materials and fabrics). More information can be found here, as well as previous years ebooks of other projects including my table runner from 2019.
