I have been learning the art of weaving fibres from my friend Margie, a talented fibre artist and seamstress extraordinaire, and what a fun experience! A few weeks ago she took me through the process of making my very own purse made from recycled fabrics and yarn all done on a cardboard loom; you can see bits of cardboard sticking out in the photo. Over homemade sorbet and good conversation I actually weaved the entire purse. The next steps will be to put in a lining to give it a bit more durability, and to put on some straps. Seriously, art projects are such a great thing to do with friends.
