Hello - I want to make a wallet/purse and could use some advice. Like what type of rings should I use, what kind of weaves... pretty much everything. I'm an ambitious girl - I started weaving only about 5 days ago and have already made a half dozen scale flowers, a couple Celtic star pendants, and a handful of the holiday ornaments from the instructions on TRL. I'm now working on a scale candle! I thought I might like doing this but I didn't realize how much I would love it! I'm making most of the above for Christmas presents and started so early because I thought it would take me a lot longer than this to complete and wanted to be done by Christmas. Yeah - at this rate I'll be done before the next week is out. That in mind I don't think I could do anything too advanced but I'm not against a nice challenge! I'd like to make something large enough to fit my cards, ID, and maybe some cash that would lay flat. I'm thinking roughly two and a half by three and a half inches? Would that be large enough? I don't want people to be able to look at the bag and see what I have inside too easily so the weave should be fairly tight - or small rings? - at the same time I'd like it to be malleable so would a looser weave and the use of the small scales be a better choice? As for closing I'm thinking a fold over flap... Lastly - the strap! I'd like a long shoulder strap so what weave would you all recommend for that? -- Edit: accidentally hit post too soon!
