Fibre Bag

 I made a little bag to hang from my spinning wheel, to hold the fibre ready for spinning.

The sides of the bag are 4" wide (16" circumference), and the bag is almost 8" tall. I used heavy interfacing along the top edge, on the base, and along the back to make the bag sturdy. There is a thin polyester batting too. For the free motion quilting I used 100Wt Invisiafil thread on top and 50Wt Aurifil in the bobbin (quilting designs - continuous curve, meander and swirls).

The bag works well, and here it is holding about 50g of fibre. It ties on the end of the spinning wheel with twill tape ties (under the mother-of-all).

It is good to have a handy son when the car needs some repairs.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
