I just finished my last projects for school this semester, I am so excited for winter break, the kids and I have a ton of crafting planned!
My final project for Pre-Columbian Peruvian weaving was a discontinuous warp and weft woven purse - I have step by step photos of the weaving, but not the time or energy to upload them right now, but I will later because it's a really interesting technique that can be done with really simple materials and not a big loom.
Anyway, here is my finished purse as a peek
it is made out of leather I got by the pound while in Philly with my husband, and handwoven alpaca.
I dyed and printed Peruvian condor images with a thermofax screen on the lining and then used a scrap of silver kid leather in my embroidery machine to make a label.
anyway, I don't have purse making pictures since that was actually and all-nighter I pulled, and I didn't think to take pictures of the process, but I will eventually upload the weaving ones.
