Here is my tote bag. This was my first weaving project – I made it during Christmas break two years ago. One of my friends had a woven bag from Ecuador which I used as my inspiration.
Yarn and string
I found a tutorial online on how to do simple weaving and my dad helped me build my loom.
The bag is made of 4 pieces.
One large piece that makes up the front, back and flap. Then there is the strap and 2 small pieces for sides.
I used a crochet hock to connect them all together.
Dress up outerwear with deep shawl collars and sew up a lovely fitted dress with a flounced hemline.
