Remember the little bag I made a few weeks ago, well here is its big sister. This piece of fabric was woven using white Moda Vera pure wool yarn as the warp and several brown handspun woollen yarns for the weft. I used a variety of patterns, trying out simple weft and warp floats from "The Weaver's Idea Book" by Jane Patrick. I'm a beginner weaver and my selvedges aren't that great, and some of the weaving patterns draw the fabric in more than plain weave so the width of the fabric varied a little along its length but on average the finished width after washing was 36 cm. The finished bag is a good size for a shoulder bag and my current knitting project fits nicely in it.

A walk on Union Hill, Waihi. Lots of fun climbing over the ruins left from mining & processing operations in the area.

Back to my bag, it is quite small so not very practical, but it was fun making it.
