Art Elements Theme Challenge - Amulet Bags

I had all kinds of high hopes to get some amulet bags done for this post, but I scheduled a trip away and there's just not enough time.  Cathy chose Amulet Bags as the theme and I know that all my teammates are going to have some amazing things to show.

So here's mine.  It's a Native American pattern, not sewn up yet.  I had purchased a pattern and kit but as of the day I left for my trip, the beads and kit weren't even mailed so, so much for that.

 Starting the loom with size 11 beads is extremely hard, at least for me.

 I finally got it going.

 The last row is also very hard...but I got it done (after about 10 times relooming the last row because of missing the warps).
And here it is.  I will sew it up into a very small amulet bag, add fringe, and it will be an appropriate size to wear as a necklace.  I do like it, looming 11s is hard but satisfying.  Check out what everyone else made!

Wow! I love the fact that you wove it on a loom. I like loom weaving as long as someone else gets it all set up for me-LOL Fantastic job. Can't wait to see it finished.
