My baskets of fiber are looking different now that I mostly use my floor loom.

Need a last minute stocking stuffer? I have some earrings in the shop ready to ship!

This size is my go-to bag! The 10”x7” is perfect for all of your essentials! I put all of my stuff into this size bag then I can easily move my stuff from my work bag, to my gym bag, to my weekend bag (aka my sons toy and snack bag). No more digging through crumbs to find my chapstick 😊

Work in progress! 〰️〰️

Bags on bags! My shop is now updated with a few more bags! Just in time for holiday gifts 💜💜

Only one of these bags left! And it’s available online! This is a small batch pattern, so this is a unique bag. And if you sign up for my newsletter you get a discount code. And it’s ready to ship, so you could get it in time for Christmas. Just sayin...😊

In my last post I talked about warp thread. Some of it I design and measure out to get an even pattern. Some of it I randomly measure out with whatever color I feel like adding. This bag 👆🏻is one of the randoms, or what I’ve been calling mixed stripe. These are very small batch (4-5 bags only). You can grab your own mixed stripe bag in two different colors in my shop! ✨✨

Warp thread. This thread is held in place on the loom while you weave the weft through. On a floor loom the warp is measured out on a warping board (swipe left for my fancy basement picture). After it’s all measured out, you can chain it to make it shorter and easier to carry 👆🏻. Then it’s ready for the loom! 〰️〰️

I often forget that not everyone’s Instagram is inundated with weaving and fiber related things. Because of this I forget to describe things well. For example, I listed these bags on @etsy and didn’t say anything about how I wove the fabric myself. My husband said, “well did you say it’s handwoven by you?” Me: 🤔 I guess not 🤦🏻‍♀️. So here we go: the fabric of these bags is designed and handwoven by me in my home in Minneapolis. I use a 36 inch floor loom to weave the fabric and sew them all myself. ✌🏻

Alright friends, three new bag styles are available for purchase in my shop! 💜💜

There’s still time to sign up for my weaving workshop tomorrow or on 12/19 @gatheredgoodscompany! You’ll learn the basics of weaving and get to play around with lots of fluffy roving. Plus you’ll leave with a mini wall hanging of your own! 💛
