Inkle strap for Saori bags
Yesterday I enjoyed learning how to use my inkle loom.
Well, maybe enjoyed is too strong a word. Learning how to use the loom was frustration incarnate. but, then, suddenly, I realized I wasn't having trouble with it any more. I was zooming along at an outstanding pace. That's the part of using the Inkle loom I enjoyed.
Suddenly, I had enough handwoven strap to make my two Saori bags.
The strap is deliberately full of imperfections to keep with the general theme. But it is still strong. It always amazes me just how strong warp faced fabric really is.
