WEFTY Weaving Pattern: Woven Diamonds!
My second printed fabric weaving pattern, Woven Diamonds, is available now! Ten full color pages of illustrations, instructions, and tips lead you through every step of the weaving process. You end up with a gorgeous 16 x 19 woven panel featuring either solid, ombre, or rainbow diamonds.
The pattern also includes instructions for using that panel to make a mini quilt or messenger bag. I made a stunning Rainbow Diamonds mini quilt, which ran away to Portland before I could snap a photo. But my friend Jeana Schaaf and I took the Woven Diamonds Messenger out for a photo shoot. I'm in love with this bag (also Jeana is really wonderful as well)!
The Woven Diamonds Messenger bag is simple and straightforward to construct (no turning!) and has room for a 15 inch laptop, notebooks, and file folders. There's an interior divided slip pocket for phone, pen, and keys with plenty of room for customization. I used velcro as the closure option because I wanted the flap to be adjustable depending on how much I'm carrying! The adjustable strap is long enough to be a cross body if needed. Something else I love about this bag is that its gender neutral!
Over the next few weeks I'll be showing off my testers' makes on Instagram, as well as my Rainbow Diamonds mini quilt! Grab the pattern here.
Whatever you're working on, I hope you're enjoying the process!
