Little Lottie bags

About this project

I acquired (through the death of a fellow weaver) some unusual worsted yarn in lots of bright colours.  Perfect for something I’d been thinking about for a while, smaller bags with less making-up than the Stuffbags.  These have the handles woven into the fabric.

This is what you do ... The yarns for the handles are woven in, plaited and then woven back, a trick I learned from a rush weaver.
