About this item

“Francis Fox taught me basic weaving during an Arrowmont Arts Weekend.  Eight women from California came to the much-anticipated annual weekend, and four took the weaving class.  It was so much fun that I continued weaving when I got home.  This handbag is a sample of my "functional weaving".  I have given these to special friends, who tell me they are showered with compliments (that's what they say!).  The bag is perfect for computers, notebooks, overnighting and more!  It is finished by a friend in Portland and should give years of wear.  I hope you enjoy it as much I enjoyed weaving it!”

Dimensions: 16" h x 19" w x 6.5" d with 11" straps
