I finished up a little experiment today.
My daughter had made a batik of a horse a while back, and it needed to do something.
Somewhere I had seen the idea to put pictures into your weaving by using figured yardage.
Decided to try it with her piece.... I did ask her if it was ok to cut it up, and she gave me her permission!
Can you see the horse? I made it into a tote and added some leather handles. Had hoped to find old belts to use, but just couldn't find the right ones so I cut my own and here it is. It seemed a little plain so I put a beaded accent on it, too. The beads say " I <3 Horses" and "Neigh".
I think it turned out ok for a first try!
