HEY! I'm here right now! Grin

It does look looser in the pictures than I remember it being... Normally, for a weft-faced weave you'd want the warp pretty tight, but that does make it a little tricky to work with, and the tapers might be tougher to balance out. Like Willeke suggests, what I did is pull up and back to tension the warp only when I was packing in the next row of weft, which I ended up doing after every insertion. The already-woven sections are almost rigid - they don't need any support.

I'm relying on the packing of the weft for almost all of the structure here. For the first pocket I posted, I waited a few passes before compacting, and it shows in the uneven product. Maybe fingers aren't pokey enough to really settle the weave?

I'll try with some "dry" twine to see if there is any difference. The tack probably helps a bit?

Great job with this thread. As usual you guys make the difficult sounding task look easy, and actually make it easy for everyone. Thank you!

Thanks for the simple instructions. I never thought of weaving the pouch seperate then adding the cords. I have been making many attempts at woven pouches finding myself discouraged with how long it takes or not liking the results. Ihave one braided sling with the pouch woven into the cords. It took a lot of experimenting, and time to make it. But I love the the performance above all of my other slings. I don't know what it is but it has a much better feel to it, like you can almost feel the stone through the cords. Maybe its just me. Thanks anyway this will help a lot.

I've been trying to figure out how to make a woven split pouch (just a pouch) that you can attach cords to for a while now. Any old cords! I would never have figured it out. I think looped weaving is called bowes?

Thanks for the bump David.

Massi - WTF? It's called a sling. You use it to throw rocks farther and faster than you could otherwise. That's all.

Yeah, that thing is seriously cool. Pretty easy to make too, although I'm not exactly sure on how to make whipping.

Wow! Any you have made of those, get us pics if you can! Remember that I am a short distance from an Egyptian original. The museum would be well impressed to see a reproduction..

I'm in the process of making a full size Tut. It's my 7th attempt, after 6 failures. It gets exponentially harder when you double the ammount of strands.

I did make one perfect one before this out of nylon mason line that was beautiful. The line was so slippery that it dropped rocks, golf balls, tennis balls, etc. Never managed to make it work.  Cry
