Birthday Giveaway! Win this Strap!

This strap was woven a couple of weeks ago, inspired by the work  of another New Mexico weaver, Irvin Trujillo. He weaves tapestries in the Chimayo tradition with many innovations. The piece which inspired this strap was a sort of abstract one called "Germantown Moki". Moki  is an old style which most often is characterized by black and blue stripes of equal size. 

When I first posted the picture of this one on my Facebook page, it got a lot of really nice comments. So, I decided that it would be great to make it the object of my January Birthday Giveaway.
Are you a Facebook user? If so, you can go on over to my Facebook page and have a chance at winning it yourself. Here's the link: Birthday Giveaway!

I've outfitted it with swivel clips so that you could attach it to whatever you carry: 
purse? spinning wheel? camera case? laptop? briefcase? gig bag? luggage?
It measures 2" wide and is adjustable from 29" to 51" in length.


  1. I like the pattern quite a bit; I'll investigate the Chimayo.

    1. Thanks, Grant! You have sure seen a lot of them!

  3. Is there a pattern for this design? My husband loves it and I'm a new inkle weaver. Not sure I could figure it out myself yet.

    1. Hi, Maro. This is not one that I have charted, but if you want to send me an email, maybe I can help you.
