New purse

    Newer Older

    This is a purse I decided to make out of some handspun woven fabric. I had a silk/merino scarf warp on a friend's loom in cream, and had more than enough to make the scarf, so I spun up an interesting green wool batt into singles on a spindle. It was fun to alternate spinning and weaving: I wound right off the spindle onto the weaving bobbins.

    The main fabric is a plain twill, and the fringe (which I'm not sure I like) is from the warp.
