I think this morning's lesson is that a project doesn't have to be big to be satisfying (!)
I'm so pleased with this, I'm already using it, and I will do until it dies, and then I have plenty of the woven material left and will sew up another one.
Yes, my black/white weaving in the last post was for this zip-up purse. It was incredibly easy and quick to make. The secret I've discovered is not to be over-ambitious, not to rush or cut corners.
While making this, a secondhand swift passed through my hands. By the time I'd sold it, I had discovered what a fantastically useful tool it is. I've always used the back of a chair or the floor, which means I spend more time untangling than winding. I really wish I'd kept it, but will be on the lookout now for another cheap one...
(I ran out of black half way through weaving and had to spin a bit more, hence the small skein.)
