Weave and Sew a Tote Bag
October 19, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm CDT
Make Up October Evening Sessions
Saturday October 19, 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m., Bailey Cove Library. Pick your pattern and color choices. Learn how to plan yarn requirements for a project. All the details will be explained. If you want a space dyed warp (and the natural yarn has arrived), wind off yarn to create a warp at home.
Start at the beginning to Weave and Sew a Tote Bag. Go through all the steps: plan the project, create the warp, space dye the yarn if desired, dress the loom, weave and create your own tote bag. This workshop is for novice and advanced crafters. Knowledge of weaving and sewing is not required. We’ll teach you the basics.
Each person will weave 2-3 yards of cotton cloth which is enough to make 1-2 tote bags depending on your size preference. Make one large bag or 2 smaller ones. These tote bags make great reusable grocery haulers or craft storage bags. Give them as handmade gifts. You have the option of weaving on your own loom (floor, table or rigid heddle) or borrowing a loom for a small fee. See the flyer attached for details. Weave a Tote Bag
