Hand made bag for knitter's loom!
I decided to make a bag to hold the Ashford Knitter's loom, using the cloth I have woven on it, whilst I await my 16 shaft Megado electronic dobby loom! Proud of myself?? Not half! I don't consider myself a sewing expert but I am mightily pleased with this! I even managed a lining and proper mitred corners! There are pockets on both sides, deep enough for shuttles etc, and another pocket on the inside.
I am sooooo impressed by this little loom-so well designed and sturdy. I wove three lengths, using 2 of three colours in each piece, each piece about 11" by 50" once finished, and arranged the pieces to get a patchwork effect, different on each side.
My self-imposed Empty Loom Syndrome is proving productive-I am rediscovering the joys of plain weave using lots of colour and weave techniques. Who needs 16 shafts anyway??!!
