Altered Art Woven Textile Purse Class

We just finished our woven purse class at the Red Shed! These darling purses are made completely from recycled materials and even the looms are made from reinvented items .

There were all kinds of fabric available to mix and match. Some brought their own fabric that had special meaning to them. These purses can be made from an old blouse that you may have loved or an old pair of your kid's jammies.

The fabrics were cut into strips.....

Fun, fluffy yarns are added for texture, color, and softness....

Lots of embellishments to choose from...........

And the ladies are ready to go!

The fabric strips are woven on the loom....

Beautiful linings and straps are added, as well a personalized photos, jewelry and buckles.....
The gorgeous results!

  2. What beautiful bags! We did weaving in an art class I took once but I never would have thought to turn it into a purse. I would love to go to Paris but I'm thinking with the economy I should probably get a job instead. Pam
