Kapica i torbica/Small hat and bag

Kreativni prvomajski vikend. Bili smo na putu, a ja kao ja nisam mogla da ne spakiram i ponesem najmanji od mojih tkalackih stanova jer sam znala da cu pronaci vremena nesto otkati. Tako je i bilo.
Kako sam vec duze vremena uvela praksu kreativnih poklona za djecu, radije nego kupovanja cokolada, bombona i keksa (ili pidzama), tako si dam truda sjesti i napraviti mali sal, kapu ili bilo sto korisno, dugotrajno i lijepo. Plan radi fenomenalno. Sretni su i mame i tate i bake i djedovi, a najstretnija djeca. Obicno pazim da boje odgovaraju spolu, jer svaka danasnja djevojcica (na zalost) obozava sve roza i Barbie-kasto, dok je djecacima svejedno, ali plavo uvijek prodje najbolje. Ovaj puta sam odlucila napraviti poklon, zajedno sa malim primaocem poklona, 4,5 godisnjim Sebastianom, koji je bio sretan i presretan da je mogao odabrati vunu, i tu i tamo provuci potku za svoju malu kapu i torbicu.
Oboje sam otkala sa nesto narandzaste vune u osnovi, a potka je bila sarena vuna koju sam sama nedavno isprela. Evo slika:
Creative weekend. We were going away, but I could not be myself if I wouldn't have packed and taken the smallest of my weaving looms, since I knew there would be some free time to weave something. I was right.
It has been some months since I introduced the practice of creative, self-made presents for the kids, rather then buying a chocolate, bombons, biscuits (or pijamas). I would take some time to weave a small scarf, hat or something else, preferably useful and nice. So far, the plan worked out fabolously and makes everyone happy. Mom's, Dad's, grannies, grandpa's, and the happiest of all have been the kids. I usually take care to match the colour depending whether it is a girl or a boy, since every small girl (sadly enough) adores pink and Barbie-like things, while the boys are easy, although the blue should be around. This time, I made the present together with its' received, a 4,5 year old Sebastian. He was thrilled to have been able to choose the wool, and help with warping the loom and weaving in the weft for his small hat and a bag (we planned the scarf, but it was too short, so we made it into a bag later).
I made it using some orange wool for the warp, and self-span coloured merino wool in the weft. Here are the photos:
