This pattern is more than just plain instruction – personal experience and pro tips and tricks are included to help you achieve great results! This pattern has illustrated sewing instructions, and a page full of ideas that make modifying the pattern to suit your needs easy.

This project is geared to the beginner/novice weaver who is comfortable warping and weaving but would like to follow a pattern and learn more about creating their own unique textile designs on the loom. This PDF download is 5 pages long and includes 5 colour images outlining the process, detailed instructions, plenty of tips on modifying and adjusting the pattern, as well as the instructions/treadling draft. If you enjoy weaving this pattern, you might enjoy making the Studio Curtains or Railroad Runner & Napkin project too!
Please note that you are not purchasing a finished soap bag but a pattern to design and make your own.
As professional artist and handweaver, my goal is to develop weaving patterns that engage people in their own creativity and increase their skills and confidence through simple projects. Making beautiful woven textiles does not have to be challenging!
