So I'll start with small samples to get the general idea then once I hit on a combination I like, I'll be weaving up huge samples (probably 1 yard at full width) to get the feel for the way the fabric behaves.
As I weave the samples, there will be a lot of measuring of materials and time - I like this kind of time and motion study. That way if someone wants me to weave something similar, I'll have some idea of what price to charge.
