One of the projects I was preparing was a length of velvet to make a bag, I wanted to couch the Sari yarn I bought a couple of weeks ago, firstly it was horrible to try and wind into a ball, it kept twisting up on itself, now I am no yarn expert, but even I know, 'that ain't right'
started couching the yarn on the machine with a zig-zag, and did not like the effect,
I also quickly realised that the repetitive stitching over the area big enough to make the bag, could possibly make my brain explode with boredom.
I have decided to use the yarn to weave around a board, there was a small neck purse done this way in an early Belle Armoire, I made a couple at the time, and its a very effective way of creating the bag in one piece. Also nice and mindless to do of an evening, i have warped it up and started with a few rows, the yarn has shredded once already, not very impressed, but luckily it wont hurt the weave, I shall mix up some strips of fabric in with the yarn, will post a pic of the weaving tomorrow, when I get a few more rows on the board.
