More weaving..





I did another small project. I went from the cardboard loom, to a loom made out from a picture frame.(instructions via youtube) It worked perfectly for this piece. I used some colourful Beehive tapestry wool which I had.


a bit of embroidery as well.





Thanking you for stopping by,

Learning to weave...


Inspiration to start this project came while browsing through Pinterest; it has so many great ideas to try.  

So, before I went ahead and spend money on a loom and may not want to continue; I made a cardboard loom for beginners
I made mine according to the instructions from www.theweavingloom.com , which has valuable tips for a beginner. I also looked at some videos from youtube too.

This is the very first  piece I tried. 

I wanted to continue on, tried to add blocks of colours.





 On the last piece, I tried to do a flower (which turned out like a maple leaf) and also how to add 'rya knots'.




So far, I like weaving ....to the next level perhaps...
