Weaving Away

I finished another weaving class - it is called "Patterns".  We got to try out all kinds of different patterns and tie-ups.  I loved this class!!  I want to take more classes, but am having trouble finding the time right now as the craziness of school starting surrounds me.
 This is how long it is.  I would love to turn it into a wall hanging at some point.  I really like the colors and think it would look really nice hanging on the wall above my big loom.
 These are just some of the patterns - as you can see it's not perfect.  There are multiple errors, but with each error, I learned so much.
 Close ups of some of my favorite parts

 I started to learn how to twirl the ends into a really nice fringy type thing.
This end is sewn right by the end of the fabric where all the fringe hangs off.  I am planning to twirl all the rest of the fringe and then make a casing for a bar to hang it with on the other end.  Then it will be hung on the wall. to make kid's lunches and figure out what the rest of the day will bring!
