Canola Fields Woven Project Bag

Last weekend, my daughter and I drove down to eastern Ontario to attend a weaving workshop with  Janet Whittam  in her home studio. It was a treat spending the weekend together with my daughter, and exploring the Morrisburg area in our spare time.

Janet is a knowledgeable and patient instructor, and I learned some valuable tips from her during the two day session. My mind was opened to the possibilities of a black warp, for example. In this piece, look how the black 4/8 cotton warp enhances the chosen colour scheme worked in wool.

I had originally planned to weave a canola fields striped table runner, but I couldn’t resist the temptation of some of the fabulous natural textures in Janet’s well-stocked studio, and ended up using materials that wouldn’t allow the fabric to be flat enough to be used in that way. The project bag is intended for knitting projects and is a simple, generously-sized, lined, draw-string bag.

Thanks Janet!
