A bit more on that shawl bag

I recently wove and sewed a bag to coordinate with an old handwoven prayer shawl, and had lots of fun coming up with overshot treadlings on the fly. The recipient asked for the bag to echo the design of the (intimidatingly masterful) original shawl, with the addition of an embroidered Star of David. Have a peek:

This was a fun project, and I’m happy with how it turned out. Next time, I’ll put on a longer warp!
