  1. The sewing instructions for the bottle bags appear to be missing the dimensions for the cut pieces of fabric. The only dimensions I could fine was that a finished piece 13″ x 60″ was for 4 bags. Could you please add additional details on how the fabric is to be cut?

    1. Hi Cindi! The reason there are no dimensions to cut the woven cloth is because you weave the cloth to the correct dimensions. The “cut” refers to when you will cut the bags apart after you weave them all on one warp (Step 7 in the magazine). So the first step of the sewing instructions picks up where the magazine left off. You’ve just cut the bags apart and secured their ends before sewing. Let me know if that’s clear! Sorry it was a little confusing.
