Thatshim ( Gary ) wanted some thing to put his wallet , car keys and mobile phone in and I was given some beautiful skeins of grey wool from Gotland by Fathma Nachiar as a present on Sunday ( 20th Oct 2013)

- so we decided to make the Hedeby Pouch Bag
Gary made the wooden pouch bag handles out of some scrap pieces of golden elm
and I wove the wool material on the Rigid heddle loom in a tabby weave
Gary wanted the bag lined with linen so his keys wouldn't catch and pull the wool

construction time has been 3 days
materials used - golden elm wood, gotland wool and pure linen
Hand woven & Hand sewn

Size : woven part is 16 cm ( 6 inches ) wide x 20 cm ( 8 inches ) Long
handle is 19cm ( 7 & half inches ) wide x 4 cm ( 1 & half inches ) long
