Encasing the resist.
Flipping the piece to repeat the process on side two.
Some months ago, when my friend, Linda was visiting...
...we attempted to make open-top bags using a resist.
Since neither of us had tried this particular kind of bag before...
...it was a case of the 'blind leading the blind'! :)
I had some beautiful variegated red and orange roving from my friend, Dawn that I'd been wanting to use...
...and a piece of highly textured, open-weave, orange(!) cotton/synthetic blend fabric...
...with which to make a wide stripe along the bag's middle.
Next time: the finished bag.
