First attempt at iphone/smartphone case

A while back I started the silk purse for the latest weave-along.  I was so proud of myself for starting it a while few weeks before I needed to.  I took a bunch of photos but took no notes.  When I finally got around the compiling all the photos into something that resembles instructions, it was clear I had both screwed a bunch of things up and missed a bunch of essential photographs.  Elena said:  do it again!

But I decided at very least to finish the piece on the loom in adequate as it was.  Who wants to cut off and toss ten inches or so of weaving.  So I grit my teeth and wove away.  And this is what I just finished.  The strap is a flat braid.  I've used mostly hand painted silk with a little bit of railroad yarn.  I lined it with silk.  It will work.  It's just not what I envisioned at all for the weave along.  I will spend the rest of today an tomorrow working on the new one.







And below, of course, is where this purse comes from!
