making up

I neatened the edges so the so they would not fray. Then had to cut the warp threads. I was a bit apprehensive about this part

Then lined the weaving with some yellow fabric. I had a little problem because the weaving was not quite they same size across all the width. I think this is to do with the tension of the weaving.

The next step was to fold into three and stitch two thirds together leaving a  flap at the top to make a bag.

I am now in the process of knitting a strap using two strands of weft thread and 7.5mmneedles . I wish I had also used a strand of warp as well. I am going to stitch ribbon to the back of the strap to stop it stretching too much.
