I added a fourth color and a new pattern to my fabric. It's starting to get... complicated... #weaving
Update: I slept on it and woke up early to try out a tan background with a different foreground pattern. I think this is the one. #weaving
I've now hit the halfway point in #weaving this fabric for a tote bag. When I get to this point I add a series of colored stripes. This does two things:
* Adds a little surprise when someone looks at the bottom of the tote
* (More importantly) Marks the center line for the fabric so I have reference points to mirror the measurements on the second half, and also assists me when sewing up the tote later.
@kyle This is nice! Looks like you unwove the previous one, that’s never fun!
@JoanESheldon Thanks! Yes I ended up unweaving it at least *twice* because the first iteration of the new pattern had tan inside the purple block and I switched it to white.
But that's the risk when you are making a pattern up on the fly. Now there is no more improvisation to do, all the patterns are decided, so the rest should go quickly.

I finished #weaving the center pattern for this side of the tote bag. It will run horizontally across the center of the tote and the brown toned pattern above and below will act like a background.
