Notes: 

Someone on Weavolution (I think) made a bag out of a long strip of handwoven fabric.  I thought it was a very clever design and wanted to do one of my own as a tote for water bottles.  I sewed the seams by hand and cut short fringe on the ends.  I would probably hem the ends if I was at home and had access to my sewing machine.

I found the source of this design ... well, at least where I found it.  It's http://donisdelis.blogspot.com/2009/01/l...

Notes: 

A friend wanted her skiens of handspun, 2 ply, woven  into a a fabric suitable for a jacket.  The handspun was a lovely dark heather that reminded us of mallard ducks.  The handspun was limited.  Chose a pattern for the jacket with out collar cuffs, lapels and princess styling to avoid the bulk of darts; needed 2.5 yds of 45" fabric.  Wove the cloth half width to reduce the loom waste.  Added two yarns to the handspun; a milk chocolate suri alpaca  with 10% tencel) and a teal boucle.  Made the warp 22" wide and 6.5 yards long  for 6 yds. woven fabric and 1/2yd. loom waste.  A 2/2 twill structure allows the cloth to be dense enough and still be pliable enough for a jacket.

The cloth is 75% hand spun, threaded in a straight twill with both accent yarns both on H4.  Woven as a straight 2/2 twill with 3 shuttles.  The cloth is quite lovely but has been hard to photograph; the curls of the boucle seem to catch the flash and seem much more prominent in the pics.

Had to weave double the length, cut in half and stitch selvedges together.  There is a little puckering (minor) where my picks per inch varies due to inconsistent beating.

Notes: 

will be back to add details, addressing pendleton tiedown questions

basically, the cut selvedge from Pendleton needs a tiedown, I've traditionally used my warp material as the tie down.

The blue is the fluff

The red is the warp material tiedown

I got tired of knitting or crocheting dish cloths, so here my solution.  I would have had 10 finished ones, if I hadn't tried to get fancy with the Draft!  Had to re-work the heddles and than finish!

Notes: 

The third warp of my "Little Blocks" Towels yielded nine towels. After machine hemming and machine washing and drying, each measures 19" x 27". The 8H Twill Blocks structure is fun to design and weave. The resulting cloth is a joy to handle.
