Oy Vey....Enough Plaid Already!!!
Yes, I did! I wove a tote using bands of plaid fabric! My niece's husband, who's from Scotland, assures me that plaids never clash....I figure he knows what he's talking about!
I finished up the two mixed fabric totes, and I just wanted to get a few more woven. I have some more fabric pulled, but I haven't made up my mind yet for the next set.
It's way too easy when these balls of plaid are just waiting to be used. I really lucked up when I got these. And, this is what I have left to use....that's a few more tote bags, I think.
After using this plaid in the mixed plaid warp, I liked the way it worked up so much that I did a whole tote with it!!!
There are now seven totes on the cloth beam, and I'm ready to take those off the loom. The handles build up at the side, and I don't want them to start to tangle.
But, before they go, I wanted to do a quick rug for my bathroom. After reading about Tina's rug yesterday, I was inspired to weave a rug for ME! You just have to mix it up sometimes and do something different. I love rag rugs!!!! I love the way they look, I love the way they feel under your bare feet, and I love to weave them! It's a win-win deal!
Today is a super busy day....I've got work to do and I must be at the post office before noon. I hope you have a lovely Fall day....and maybe you'll get some weaving done, too!
