I have some beautiful cotton chenille threads right now to play with. One of them is a gorgeous lavender color. I had to do something with it.
I've been having a lot of trouble getting the patterns in my weaving to show up. One theory was I was using too thin of a warp thread for the larger, thicker chenille weft. So, this project used the purple and blue chenille for the warp and then I woven entirely with the purple thread. It is so soft!
The pattern still didn't show up like I had hoped, but it worked out better. So, I played with it. It's pretty and it is soft, but I'm not sure what I want to do with it. I'm thinking I might sew it into large bags.
This is weave #1
I like the idea of making some bags out of this, but I don't know what to use for a bag strap. I thought about using the inkle loom to make nice straps, but you can see in the previous post, that turned into a disaster. I'm not sure what I'm going to do.
