I finally finished my weaving project. I think it turned out quite nice. It was fun to explore some new weaving techniques and stitches! I used several different handspun yarns. This website has a lot of good ideas and I used several of them https://aprettyfix.com/5-wavy-weaving-techniques/
There were some problems I had to work out along the way. Definitely make sure you leave more room at the top and bottom of the project while on the loom. It takes more length of warp to tie things off then you think. So…don’t look at the back of the project…LOL…Messy! More learning there.
Here is a sneak peak at where I’m going with the next one. I like the striking looks of all natural color but am wondering about adding some color in the next one.
But then I have seen some really cool weaving’s using natural colors too!
Can’t wait to get into the studio tomorrow and see where i am lead!
If you are a creative person then you are probably like me! You have an unlimited amount of stash supplies on hand. Yarn, roving, ribbon, lace, fabric…YIKES where does it end?? I am feeling very overwhelmed again; especially since I have to do my year end inventory soon! UGHHH
So for 2020 I have committed myself to using up what I have and only buy the most essential things! I know…easier said then done. But I have signed up for several shows for 2020…more then usual. I need to finally make money at this business or I have told my hubby that I’m going to hang it up. Does that mean I will be entirely done? UH NO! I will always have something going on….LOL
One thing lead to another (you know how that goes when on Pinterest!) and I saw yarn art. Did I mention I have a lot of yarn>>>
OH MY GOSH!!!! that lead me on another topic! Yarn wall art.
That lead me to this….Dip-Dye Wall art.
Weaving isn’t new to me and I have done macrame and dyeing before; so looks like I may have a direction. My goal is to create art pieces that I can not only sell but also make kits for smaller versions to sell to the fiber community and teach classes!
All of these projects would also be kid friendly and a great way to get the younger generation involved in the arts! Now that I like.
