New hand bags added to my Etsy Shop

On top of my watches and bracelets, I've also added a couple of new bags, some pot holders and my first weaving supplies:  Extra thick Cotton Loopers!

My new bags are different styles from my recent bags.  They are Spring and Summer bags with bright colors.  I know you'll love them as I do. 

Over the years, I've woven on all kinds of looms.  From my little toy pot holder loom and my tablets used for tablet weaving to large floor looms.  I love them all for their versatility and the different kinds of weaving I can do on each.  But, I tend to use my little pot holder loom the most.  It's just so convenient.  So, once I found a new supplier for cotton sock rings (Loopers), I immediately started making new pot holders.  The resulting pot holder is thicker but a tiny bit smaller than the ones I'm used to.  This is caused by the extra thickness in the loopers.  They result in a much thicker pot holder.  It's great.  So far, I've posted a set of 3 potholders and a bag of enough loopers to make 10 pot holders.  I'm starting to dye some of the loopers for sale and am working on several potholder rugs, too.  So, if this sounds interesting to you, keep tuned.  Here are pictures of the pot holders and the loopers for sale.

Recent additions to my Weaving shop

Hi, folks.  I'm still trying to get my new website up and running.  It's more difficult than I had expected. 

In the meantime, I HAVE completed and posted several new items for sale at my Weaving shop on Etsy, Andy's Treasures.  (www.Etsy.com/shop/Andy0514)

I'm getting more and more comfortable weaving with the little tablets.  I really enjoy the resulting bands.  I have several products made from my first good band (that is the first one that looked right) and so far, one that includes a shoulder strap made from a different band.  Here as the items that I've posted so far with tablet-woven bands.
