How to weave a boho or hobo bag on the triangle loom

My daughter sewed me a couple of gorgeous triangle shaped bags that got me thinking….

‘Hmmmm…. could I weave a triangular shaped bag?’

And, the answer was so obvious that it was a palm to forehead moment!

Duh! Use the triangle loom!

So, I did, and here’s the result:

The easiest bag ~ever~!!!!

These bags are so comfortable to use- they hug your body!

I designed it so there are 2 pockets on the outside for glasses, cellphone, business cards, lip gloss etc

I wove mine on the 3 foot configuration of my Dewberry Ridge Triangle loom LINK to their site.

But, you could weave it on the 6 foot configuration, too, if you prefer.

Demonstrating with the full size triangles was too hard to get into the screen of the video camera,

so I used triangles woven on my 14 inch triangle:

The finished bag is about 24 inches from the tip of the handle to the base point and about 18 inches across:

It’s such a fun and easy bag to make, I know that I am going to be making a whole lot more of them!

When I showed

some pics of

a few of the bags

on the late hankering blog,

she didn’t like them.

So….

she canceled her order.

Eegads and little fish!

THAT’s not good!

Then…

she noticed on

Amazon,

LINK

that you can search

inside the book

and take a peek

at some of the

other bags in the book.

So, she did that,

and loved what she saw.

She ordered the book,

and when it came,

she was THRILLED!

She loves all the neat

techie stuff in the book

and that it’s like having

a workshop at her fingertips.

I asked her if I should

try this again,

and show more pics

of the woven bags.

She said, ‘YES!’

I asked her which ones

she thinks I should

show, and she listed

off these ones,

so I pulled them

out of the trunk

where I am storing them,

and got the camera out….

so, here’s another look inside the book!
