I know Friday afternoon, especially in the US before a holiday weekend, is not a great time to ask a question.
But, I'm hoping to finish my double weave sample tomorrow, since I'm in deadline mode.
So I'm going to ask and hope that one of you can help!!!
I want to use double weave to make a purse with a flap.
I'd like the purse to be a tube that's closed at the bottom and both sides. (I know how to do that with double weave).
At the top of the purse, I'd like to smoothly transition into weaving a flap.
The only thing I've been able to figure out is to start weaving two separate layers at the top of the purse. One layer can be the flap, and the other layer could be cut off and hemmed or made into a pocket for the bag or something.
Does anyone have other ideas? I keep wanting there to be a way for the flap to include both layers of fabric, but doing that seems like it will close the top of the purse. (And a purse with a closed top isn't very useful!)
Thank you in advance!!!!
Sorry for the lack of photos in this post. My mind is boggled because I've spent most of the day weaving double weave pickup. It's like magic, slow magic....but my brain is tired!!
(I will definitely have blog entries about pickup, if only to help myself remember how I did it!! I think I'll have questions for you about that too.....but those questions aren't stopping my progress luckily!)
Thank you for reading, and have a great weekend!
