More bag ideas?

Last night I found the following tutorial (thanks to the Rav RH group) :
http://sasw.blogspot.com/2007/06/recycled-placemat-purse.html
It shows how to make a flat bottomed bag from a flat pouch.

My “pink zin” woven scarf is 8-9″ by 48-49″ unwashed. I want to make a functional bag from it.

My sewing skills are inadequate, but I can get assistance.

pink zin

I finished the first weaving. I am disappointed in the resulting fabric if it is considered a scarf, because it is harsh. The scarf is woven from hand dyed Knitpicks “Stroll” warp and handspun 2-ply corriedale dyed by Spunky Eclectic. (project page) The current plan is to make this into a bag.

These pictures are really mediocre because it is dark and I am too lazy to find a real camera.

Since this was my first project on my Emilia loom, I should probably talk about that, but I think that should be a separate post.

There is progress with the loom. I have had a lot of adjustment issues that it really seems like should have been covered by the instructions. The instructions include a diagram of a slip knot, so why would they not show you where the clamp that holds the loom in the right position should be placed?
