First up is this bag:
back in 2011 so perhaps it looks familiar.
Triangular Bag at Between the Lines. It calls for a fabric three times as long as it is wide and that was exactly what I had...plus a little left over for the handle. I lined it with some poplin that was languishing in a drawer. A fun little bag for carrying around projects.
Then earlier this month I bought the new book Woven Textile Design by Jan Shenton. For me the book is a fresh approach to designing woven textiles, mostly because I've been immersed in weave structures...drafts, tie-ups, treadling sequences. So I was in need of a broader perspective. Toward the back of the book there is a whole section on textured cloth including a section on making horizontal pleats. So I've been sampling:
I'm not sure what practical use this fabric will be. It depends on how it washes up. But is sure has been fun to play with.
I hope you are having as much summer fun!
