My new friend from weave workshop has saved me from myself. I destroyed a small inkle band trying to make a prototype 'pouch'. I am so not a seamstress. So I asked her, (her education is in textiles) if she would take a look and see what she thought.
I gave her a very vague idea of what I thought I wanted and asked her to give it a shot with my green hemp and white cotton band. It was one of the first ones and it also happened to be the longest. I didn't realize, until it was too late, that the mystery yarn from the Art Center was green hemp. Thus it is a bit scratchy, but should wear like iron. It wasn't my favorite and I knew that if we destroyed it I wouldn't be a bit upset.
She is a miracle worker. She achieved EXACTLY what I wanted and brought it to me today. I love, love, love this little bag. I haven't thought of a name for them yet. Most of them will be small, maybe a bit on the long side. Some will even be made into cell phone pouches.
I still have to find a button or something along those lines for a closure, haven't decided if I want to put a strap on it or not. It is a good size for a make-up bag and as such would not even need a strap.
But I really just wanted to give you guys a preview! CHECK IT OUT!!!!
