"Handwoven Magazine" has so many opportunities to learn.  One
of them is their http://weavingtoday.com . I decided to join their
"Weave-Along". 

The people at "Handwoven Magazine" picked a two-block design
from Mary Atwater's "Shuttle Craft Book of American Handweaving". 
(See Picture A).

I decided to weave a BLOCK TWILL (Picture B).  I used my
LeClerc 8 shaft Voyager loom and threaded it in a gold color using
5/2 pearl cotton sett at 20 ends per inch.  I wove with a 5/2 pearl
cotton in a black color. 

Then I repeated the weave so it was double in length. (Picture C)

Below the woven fabrics you will find a picture of me holding the bag I wove in block twill.  I also wove the strap on my inkle loom (Picture D).

I love to make dolls so I created "Amy".  She is wearing her block twill
dress.  I decided to needle felt her head and the flower that she is
holding.   Amy is below the picture of me holding the block twill bag 
(Picture E).
