Odds and Ends
Bobbin lace is essentially weaving that is tensioned by pulling the threads against pins. The manipulations of the bobbins creates the woven sections.
Sew Together. They have a zipper at the top and angled sides so the bottom sits flat. The one with the bright yellow zipper was my test piece made with commercial fabrics. The other three are made with handwoven fabric from a network drafting sampler I wove recently. The zipper insertions are all slightly different on the purple bags. I like the look of the bag at the back best.
