Lydia Webbe – Tablet Woven Trim

For this project, I’m digging into the rabbit hole of the Haithabu bag handles. I’m starting with a few components for my interpretation of a possible bag made from handwoven fabric. The completed bag will be shared in the near future. 

My goal here is to make something functional and also pretty. I envision a bag that would be handy for gathering seeds and plants and herbs. I’ll likely make more than one. I currently have plans for a bag made of woven fabric and one netted using sprang. A leather option is on my radar, but not in my immediate designs.

I’ve planned 4 components to my first bag: the handles, the fabric pouch, decorative trim, and a strap. For this display I present to you the trim, strap and dyed yarn that will become the pouch.

  1. These are lovely! The larger one has great contrast and will make an eye catching handle for sure. I think the lozenge twill is going to be a great backdrop. I hope I get to see the finished product some time!
