First, for all those who haven’t yet tried weaving placemats from recycled plastic bags, here are some examples by Dorothy

Typical recycled plastic bags are from newspapers, Target, WalMart, Kroger,  and more. The interesting random lines result from the store’s logos.

For even more interest, here are samples made on a Rosepath threading.

Below, is a very attractive wall hanging by guild member, Ryoko

Here are Ryoko’s construction notes. Ryoko says “This is actually a “1-1/2” weave, not a double weave. Strips when woven-under, are not actually woven. They are UNwoven."

Lastly... a son who travels a lot, was wearing a classy shirt he bought in Italy, when Dorothy became intrigued by the double-sided cloth and decided to see if she could figure out how to weave it.
