New Project

I started a new inkle band with inspiration from another piece of cloth. I'm in a blue stage this summer and being reminded of the ocean.

Along with the inkle weaving I also started a new bead loom project that will be incorporated with this inkle band. I haven't really worked out all the details, but I'd like to make the beaded portion the focal point of the bag.
I changed the colors of the flowers to compliment the inkle strap's and interior coloring and am having a ton of fun with it. Hopefully the vision I have in my head will work out into something tangible.

I am so glad you posted this. A couple of us were talking about weaving with beads this weekend and our question is...can you use beads in the warp or is it best to be used in the weft?

Just beautiful! You are really finding your stride with these two weaving techniques!

I just came back from the Este Park wool market where my grandson got to weave on a inkle loom. It was so fun that now I think we might need one!
