I used fabric strips as weft on my first project. It had a nice thick look and wove amazingly fast, but I decided it was too much trouble cutting the strips. I used the method of cutting a continuous loop on the bias. Also, when I went to sew the fabric, my sewing machine would not go through the fabric weft. For the next project, I changed to 4/2 cotton, doubled for the weft. It was much faster to prepare, and was easy to sew.
to accent the beautiful colors in the warp, these projects were done as warp-faced rep weave.
Here are the luscious materials from the third project (including Kathrin's space-dyed warp) before I began:
And the final products:
Computer Bag Front
Computer Bag Back
Sock Yarn Bag
Sock Yarn Bag Back
I also made a set of placemats, a table runner, a wall hanging, and more bags which I gave away before I took photos.
