My current project. Just kind of wingin' it.
My friend Alissa, a full time college student, full time Home Depot employee and mother, asked for a pencil pouch. Of course we all know I don't need a reason to weave, but it is soooooo nice to have one. LOL
So I had her pick the colors from my stash that she wanted and I must say that I love them together. The warp is 36" and 146 warps wide. Used #10, so it is only about 2 1/2" wide.
Practicing on the different techniques, the silly scroll in 'warp floats galore' took me most of the day...I should have done a few more piece's with the technique a few months ago. It's like learning it all over again.
This is what I have so far. No particular design factors in mind, I just want it to be unusual and interesting for her to look at. Maybe even to catch the eyes of some of her fellow student friends, and my old buddies at Home Depot.
At this point I think it will be my usual envelope pouch, just long and narrow instead of the more square version. I will definitely be getting out the sewing machine soon. I also need to put together the little purple peace sign bag for my friend Aye!
