Hello Everyone! So in my previous entry, I briefly mentioned that I recently taken up weaving! I did not expect to enjoy it as much I have been, but I find weaving relaxing and soothing. I have been mostly weaving with wool yarn that I have bought from local craft shops. I have also been using hemp yarn, and experimenting with up-cycled materials such as shirt and cotton fabric strips. The picture below is a tapestry I weaved out of the up-cycled materials. I think it’s pretty rustic!
I have made a couple handbags out of some of my finished handwoven projects. The crossbody bag is a mixture of wool and hamp yarn.
The tote bag below is another awesome colorful bag that was partially hand weaved. The middle of the bag was handwoven from multi-colored wool yarn, and then sewn onto cotton fabric. (Don’t mind the photo bomber 🙂
This past month, I weaved two more wall hangings, including an orange pumpkin that is currently hanging up in my living room! But my favorite so far, is the mountain tapestry. I am surprised how well this one turned out considering I have only been weaving for a few months!
