Noro Kogarashi Woven Purse

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I am most proud with the results of how the weave turned out especially after unravelling the piece from a knitted project. What advice would you give someone starting this project? The shell and lining turned out to be a bit too bulky for the purse frame so I would suggest a lighter fabric for the lining.

What you will need

  • 1 skein Noro Kogarashi Yarn (Colour 10) for weft
  • 1 skein Louet Riverstone Chunky (Clour 57 French Blue) for warp
  • 9.5cm wide purse frame
  • Linen fabric for lining (10cm X 20 cm)
  • Sewing thread for jeans
  • Basting needle (or long needles)

Q&A with Miss Purl

I really LOVE this! What a great way to use sample weaves and those little quick weaves done on smaller, portable looms. I have a couple of the purse frames I was using for felted bags, I never even thought of using them for bulky wovens and I love the look you got! Thanks so much for the inspiration!
