My handwoven tapestry bags - 3 finished!

These are all handwoven on a loom, using traditional tapestry weaving techniques with my original ideas. Mostly wool yarns are used, some handspun.

Each has a tatted loop (yes, another use for tatting!) and one of my handmade polymer clay buttons.

They're lined with a cotton blend cloth, and measure about 5x6 inches. Just large enough for a small digital camera, or maybe a couple of tatting shuttles. Not enough room for a ball of thread, but still, each is a unique little bag that is one of a kind, and definitely a work of art.

These are very cool! The weaving class that Mom and I are taking in August is about weaving material for purses... I getting excited!

Thank you! I am so proud of these, I just couldn't resist making them into a slideshow. These cute bags use tapestry weaving techniques on a scale that is manageable for me, and result in a wearable art item. Something else to submit to a magazine...although "Belle Armoire" expects more tatted necklaces from me, these could be sent to "Handwoven"!
