Enjoying Monday Blues

Having a little play on my new tapestry loom. I’ve been working on this weaving frame for quite a while – trying to get it just right. It’s pretty fun and I hope to have it available in my Etsy shop soon.

Wishing you have a happy week.

Happy 2018

Kicking off the new year with a quick, fun little weave.

I first saw this woven planter project in Maryanne Moodie’s Book ‘On the Loom’ and wondered if I could make it using my circle loom and an empty yarn cone as a guide.

It worked out pretty well and now have a tiny hanging plant brightening up the place. (I’ll get out in the garden soon and transplant a real one 😉

Birds and clouds

Here are the little brooches Rosie and I made together.

Each one features a hand woven or printed fabric with some exquisite embroidery stitches, placed snuggly in shaped wood frame with a ‘vintage look’ brooch pin on the back

They’re now in the Little Beehive co-op, Nelson and are priced at $35each.

If anyone would like to make one using their own special fabrics in this way, we will shortly be offering the frames separately for DIY projects. Please send a message if you are interested.

Stripes

I’m using leftover bobbins of silk, cotton and wool to weave some colourful stripe combinations.

A few centimetres of each to be used as ‘blankets’ for some new Christmas decorations I’ve been working on.

Weaving a little bit of fun, merry and bright this season.

3 square loom weaving projects

Here’s a very small woven wall decoration I made for a wee corner of the studio. I improvised with my square loom plus some scraps of thick wool and cotton. It was really fun and quick to weave.

I also wove some small squares to use as make up remover wipes. They are made of machine washable organic cotton which is sooo soft and gentle.

Lastly, some tree decorations. Squares folded in half diagonally and stitched into triangle shapes. Glue a cinnamon stick inside and stitch a sparkly star on the top.

Both these little looms are available from my Etsy shop here.
