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.
Ps. There is free shipping within New Zealand from now until the end of the year!
Jewel colour weaving coming off the loom today. I’m working on some new products with a friend Rosemary Horn. She will add some embroidery stitch magic to them and they will become little wall art pieces and brooches.
Rosie and I will be selling these amongst other lovely goodies at the Great Christmas Market on the 26th November.
…..I’ve been working on everything all at once. Some chunky knits for the Little Beehive Co-op shop, some warming hand weaving, and an exciting design collaboration with my studio buddy Nester prints .Here is a little sneak-peep – still a way to go yet.
Sometimes I take on a big project and really challenge myself.
This commission has me slowly but surely weaving four wall panels – juggling many colours, shapes and techniques.
Still learning lots and loving it.
New tiny ‘sea escape’ weavings woven this week – using hand dyed silk, cotton and merino.
I’ve been wanting to make one of these wall hangings for a long time. I simply tied on some natural textured yarns onto a piece of driftwood (using larkspur knots); attached some delicate beach finds; did a bit of hand weaving over and under groups of threads here and there; and finally, added a touch of silvery sparkle.
Think I’ll call it a ‘dreamweaver’ – maybe it looks a bit 1970’s, but spending an hour quietly making something with natural elements has made me really happy 🙂
