Every now and then, I put a black warp on my loom and use up some of the yarns that are left on my bobbins. I am lucky enough to have many, many bobbins, but I usually find my self scrambling to find enough free bobbins for my current project. So, what to do with all of the bits of fabric that I make???? I make purses.
I also inherited the silk trimmings from a fellow fibre artist Margaret Boyle of Common Threads Studio, who makes beautiful painted hangings. These trimmings are about 12" long and 1/8" wide. These are what the top purses are woven with.
These are a mixture of cottons, rayon, and chenille.
They are fully lined and have zipper closures. I had some blue ones too, but they have all left the roost.
