The Impetuous Weaver Weaves a Gift

I do believe this is the first project I have woven with a specific gift recipient in mind- two recipients, in fact: my lovely niece and her new husband. As a wedding gift, I wanted this to be something special and personal, and also useful. Since I had Such Fun with the warping paddle last time, I wanted to make this a mixed-warp project, too.

The Impetuous Weaver Plays with Texture

No longer able to resist the siren call of the Weavers Texture Sampler, I recently set out to make a simple, gauzy length of fabric featuring this array of many-textured yarns. Fuzzy, twinkling, slubbed, crisp, and diaphanous- it was going to be an adventure!

The Impetuous Weaver presents: A Summertime Tote

woven bag hanging in front of shop

This quick summertime shoulder bag was inspired by sunny days and Juniper Moon Zooey, a cotton-linen blend that is crisp, strong,  and soft, with an earthy, slubby texture. The medium weight makes for quick work, and the slubbed texture does not demand precision. It's the perfect formula for casual, summery weaving!


The weaving experience needed to make this bag is minimal, and the finishing techniques can be very basic, or as finicky as you wish.
