Free Handwoven Bag Projects from Weaving Today
This handwoven yoga mat carrier offers
serenity for the bag-obsessed.
I have a confession to make: I am the Imelda Marcos of bags. I don't sigh for Prada purses or Coach clutches, but I can't pass up handwoven bags of any shape or size. I have handwoven bags for projects, for carrying equipment, and for hauling vast quantities of yarn. I love handwoven purses, cell phone covers, notion bags . . . you name it!
There are good reasons for my obsession. A bag is a great small project for exploring a new weave structure or showing off a sample from a larger project. A handwoven bag dresses up any outfit, and they're an affordable, portable way to collect samples of different weaving traditions from around the world. See? I'm not a weaver with a bag problem, really. I just appreciate the finer things.
If you're a bag lady like me (or an aspiring bag lady), you'll want to pop right over to Weaving Today and download our new free eBook, Learn How to Make Woven Bags. Visions of Prada will pale as you peruse instructions for colorful rep rag totes by Dinah Rose (with clever pockets––an endearing quality in a bag). You'll thrill to Sue Bleiweiss's serene yoga mat carrier, and flush with excitement at Joan Sheridan Hoover's Farkle game bags in summer and winter. If you need a portable bag project, Deborah Shelmidine's felted weaving bench bag made with pin-loom squares will be just the thing. (Oooo, you'll need a bag to carry it in while you're working on it!)
Seriously, these projects are clever, good-looking, useful, and a fun way to explore weaving techniques. I hope you'll click over to our free download page and bag your copy today!
