Bag, by Chris Beech

Chris was much too dismissive of this attractive bag, but her view may have been colored by the fact the body of the bag used to be her skirt some years ago. Made of wool, with a lovely new band, this bag comes in a hefty, nice size and a unique shape. Chris is going to use it to haul library books.

Fabulous bag Chris. Are the band/handles Inkle loom woven? Plaited end detail finishes it beautifully.

It was really a nice bag, Dianne. If Chris had said one more bad thing about it, I would definitely have pinched it!!

Chris is altogether too self-deprecating. I think it's brilliant!

Hear, hear!!

reply to Diane
Thanks all for the +ve comments - as Meg says, I still see a 1970's A line skirt rather than a bag! The band/handles is a warp faced twill band woven on a 4 shaft loom - much faster than on an inkle loom.

Ah, are there any books with information/patterns for doing bands?
