Ryoko Marti, a local weaver who also gives private lessons, was recently inspired by a Telemarksteppe table runner designed by Laura Demuth (Mr/Ap Handwoven)

Ryoko says: " I liked the oblong part of the pattern, so I selectively chose among the elements to make an oblong the centerpiece of my design."
Here are some details:
Warp: 20/2 double linen, natural.
(She says she got a great deal at a garage sale)
Tabby weft, same as warp
Pattern weft: Bag #1) 8/2 wool, dark blue
Bag #2) 12/2 wool, red, doubled

8-strand hollow braid made on Marudai, with 5 ends of 8/2 cotton on mop cotton core

The bags are designed to carry a tablet/e-reader.

"It's an old-fashioned weaving pattern that makes a great modern gadget carrier", she says.
