Planning and weaving the fabric
Constructing the bag. The bag was reinforced with a calico lining, quilting them to maintain the shape and integrity of the woven fabric. The fabric was then cut to shape and made into the bag, using the inkle braid for the drawstring. It’s OK to cut your hand woven fabric - be brave!
