These simple bags are so versatile, you'll be using them for shopping bags, lunch bags, knitting bags, and more! They are quick and easy, too, woven on a rigid heddle loom in simple plain weave. We've used Mallo, a US-made yarn that blends 55% organic cotton with 45% conventionally-raised cotton. It is a slub so the finished fabric has a pebbly texture. The warp uses two colors of Mallo and each bag uses one of the warp colors as the weft. The pattern includes the sewing instructions to turn your woven rectangle into two clever bags, each approximately 21.5" x 22" when flat. They can be machine washed and dried.
You will need:
- 17" weaving width rigid heddle loom
- 10-dent rigid heddle
- flat shuttle
Our bag uses Mallo colors Icicle and Spice. If you would like these colors, simply order the kit above. If you would like to choose your own colors, please see our Mallo page to view the options. Then return to this page, order the kit, and tell us your two color choices in the box above.
