Look what I made

Fabric! This is my first fabric off the weaving loom. I'm pretty happy with it. It's made from handspun, both warp and weft and I definitely enjoyed weaving with my handspun more than I like knitting with it. I'm hoping to make a Doni's Deli Bag  The way the fabric evolves from quite loose to dense might make this look a bit odd, but it's what I had in mind when I wove it  so I'm likely to go ahead. The fabric also came out a little narrower than I thought it would, due to a basic counting error on my part. I also have to actually sew by handknit hand woven fabric, which takes a bit of courage for a reluctant sewer like I am. I haven't decided if I should pull out the old sewing machine, or just hand stitch it. For the moment though, I'm happy to keep running it through my hands, feeling clever and saying to myself, Wow, fabric.
