Woven Boho Bag

This Woven Boho Bag puts the fun in functional!  Woven triangles are seamed together to create this colorful bag.  Use a large loom to make a great market tote or a small loom for a purse-sized bag.

If you haven’t tried weaving on a triangle loom yet, I think you’ll be surprised how easy it is.  I did a basic weaving tutorial earlier this year.  It’s a great reference to introduce you to triangle looms and learn some essential weaving skills.

I used a couple different sizes of Kiss Triangle Weaving Looms.  The larger 50-peg loom was just perfect for a large market bag while the smaller 20-peg loom made the perfect size for a boho chic purse.

INSTRUCTIONS:

Using two strands of yarn held together weave 6 triangles.  I did two solid blue, two solid green and two triangles using one strand of each color.

The front and back of the bag will each use 3 triangles.  For the front place 3 triangles with the long sides facing outward.  Sew the triangles together along the short sides shown in red below.  Repeat with the other 3 triangles for the back.

To create the handle overlap the tips of top triangles together by 1”. Sew together along existing seam. Sew on decorative button (optional).
