The bag so far

wool band bag2

The bands were woven, sewn into a bag shape, then tossed summarily into the washing machine. The fabric agitated a while (in hot water, with detergent), then ran through the rinse cycle, agitated again, the water spun out, then I popped the fabric into the dryer for about 15 minutes.

The fabric is nicely fulled, still supple, and will move on to the next phase (the band for the handle) next.

Last, a picture on a green background, just for Freyalynn:

(I'm not sure the green helps, but, hey, she asked)

How about a cream background? Or tan? Your work is lovely, of course. On the fish thing, I've found Gary Larson generally has basic idioms figured out. Or, I can send you some herring in the mail...! I've found field guides to be good resources for proportions, too.

Green always makes things better. It's just one of those basic facts that help the Cosmos to exist.
