I started sewing the latest inkle band into bags. With the length I get from my loom I can produce two bags. I screwed up one entire bag and had only some material left. I made the small bag but could not line it, this is something I need to work out, as the liner is important for keeping thing from piercing the woven fabric and causing damage. The second larger bag is holding my card weaving cards, I would have liked to have my shuttle sticks with the cards and therefore need to design a longer bag. For now it keeps the cards in one place and I stuck the shuttles in there even if they stick out for now.
These are the cards that were made for me. I'm still working on cleaning them up and getting all the plastic bits in the holes smooth. I'm starting to get excited on the possibilities with these. I'm still not sure how it all works but that's not going to stop me from trying.

I'm planning on warping my RH tonight with what will become my son's bible cover. I"m going to use some of the techniques found in Woven Treasures, and hopefully I'll have something that can be sturdy enough to use. If the card weaving turns out well I will use it as a decorative book mark for the cover.

The bags look great! What colors do you think will go into the bible cover? Good luck with the card weaving, those look like nice ones!

The inkle bags turned out nicely! The card weaving looks intimidating-will be interested in what you can do with them!

Love the bag! I don't know about the card weaving but can't wait to see what you do with it!

I agree about the bags, they look really good!

Card weaving is a mystery to me, but like you, am fascinated with the possibilities. I hope you're able to give us some detailed posts as you begin to explore it.
