I’ve already shown you a couple of samples for the pleated bag workshop and now here’s a tote bag made entirely in Merino wool.

Background laid out.

Working the pleats is made easier with the Wedge Washboard. It’s a little bit big but I understand they’ll be bringing out a mini version whcih I think will be perfect. I’ll be sure to let you know as asoon as they do.

You can really see the structure of the pleats. And now for the second side.

I intend to bead the centre circle on this side. If you fancy coming to the pleated bag workshop on Sunday 9th November there’s still a couple of places left.
