How to weave a shoulder bag on the 14 inch triangle loom

Last week, I posted a video tutorial on how to weave a bag using the 3 foot triangle loom LINK

I’ve also designed a shoulder bag to weave on the 14 inch triangle loom, with a little help from weaving sticks🙂

This bag is a great way to showcase handspun yarns, art yarns, tarn or other special yarns.

It’s VERY comfortable to wear across your body.

Wearing across like this keeps it closed.

If you don’t wear your bag across, then you’ll want to make a shorter strap, and add a button at the ‘V’.

The bag is made of 4 triangles woven on the 14 inch Dewberry Ridge triangle loom LINK

The hypotenuse of the triangles have cords made on the lucet (a spool knitter works just as well) to stabilize the edges.

The sides, base and handle are woven as one continuous piece on 6 weaving sticks.

There’s a pocket on the front and also on the back of the bag, for business cards, glasses, cellphones, lip gloss, etc.

I made a video tutorial (with the usual assistance of my dogs… palm to forehead) showing how to make this spiffy shoulder bag:

    • I hope that you’ll really like it, Donna🙂
      One thing: Because you are 8 inches shorter than I am, you may want to make the side/base/handle strap shorter than the one I did in the video🙂
