Linen bag





Seems like impressive yards of material to make just one of these strip purses. This one contains pearl cotton, bamboo and linen. It sold at the Driftless Fair before I had a chance to admire it much. Good thing that I have one more on the loom.
I do so enjoy working with linen. It has such a crisp elegance; yet also a timeless appeal that makes me feel connected to the women and men of yore that grew the flax and retted the fiber before spinning it into yarn. Ancient connections with modern uses.

    Love the bag, the strip would be a great way to try different materials and weave patterns etc.
    Beautiful job.
