:: Rag Weaving Class at Handmaker's Factory ::
Now that I have acquired a new recycle craft skill as well as a weaving frame courtesy of Handmaker's Factory, I have been searching the web for rag weaving inspiration - ways in which this technique can be incorporated into a recycled fashion piece.
The most obvious choice would have to be a rag woven bag by weaving a series of fabric strips to make a few pieces large enough to sew into a tote, clutch or purse.
Here are some examples:

:: Multicoloured Rag Weave Clutch by GirlGeniusGoods ::
:: Rag Weave Coin Purse also by ACLhandweaver ::
:: Rug Skirt seen on A Pair and a Spare ::
Moving away from fashion, yet using old garments to create new, denim can be a great material to use to weave into durable rugs and placemats:

:: Denim Placemat seen on The Country Farm Home ::
I am sure there are plenty more rag weave pieces to be inspired by on the net, if you know if any more, feel free to leave a comment below.
