This auction is for a little shoulder bag, handwoven on a table top loom.
The warp threads (the vertical ones) are soft cotton in pastel candy shades of blue, green, cream and pink. This is a fairly textured fabric - the weave pattern itself is textured, and the weft yarns include chenille, soft cottons and shiny ribbon and threads in a range colours from soft mauve through to pink and red.
The strap, which is quite long, was also woven on a table top loom as a strip, on a strong cotton warp.
The bag is fully lined with vintage fabric - a crisp white cotton with little pink rosebuds - and there is a little internal pocket.
It is finished by hand with a vintage button and a little plaited button loop fastening.
Woven mainly in cotton, this bag is quite soft but it will be durable and its washable by hand.
The dimensions of the bag are approximately 9.5 inches/24cm (wide) by 10 inches/25.5cm ; the strap is 35inches / 89cm long.
Bids start at $30.00 (US $$) please.
