My small project for today

I am making myself a Pocket Purse.  I've never done this before and don't have a pattern, I am going by what I see on the one I bought last year.  I decided to weave the material for one myself - I bought black and lavender yarn.

My quick project for the day was to weave the material.  So - here are a few pictures from my day:

Setting up the loom.....

Starting to make progress.....

Completed fabric.  I need to get a zipper and chording (for the strap) - hopefully I can get those in a few days when I visit a nearby town.

This is the Pocket Purse I bought last year, that I am using as my sample (though I am thinking of using only one zipper....especially since I am making this up as I go along).

I can't wait to see it either!  LOL!

I hope I can find the things I need on Wednesday when I go to the other town.  I -think- I know where there is a store I can find zippers in...and I HOPE I can find chording.

So awesome! You might be able to find a zipper and straps in the shook. The one in beer sheva has everything but I know you're not close to there and I don't know if you have one near you

There is only a small shuk here two days per week....I am told that occasionally a guy shows up with fabric, etc....but you can't predict when he will be here.  There is one store in my town that sells yarn...but they don't have fabric or accessories.  :-(

I have to go to Nahariya on Wednesday anyway to pick up a rental car we'll have for a few days.  I have a list of errands to do while there too.  There are two fabric stores there and a sewing-machine store....so I hoe that with those options I'll find what I need.

Sounds like a plan!

Looking good so far. I had what I needed for my many projects today. I finished all but one thing.
