Weaving in Miniature


My experiments with weaving are continuing. Without practicing in real size I jumped to fine weaving right the way. What to wait for, true?

Last weekend I was "sampling" different weaving designs in miniature. Since they are still on the loom and rolling over, I can't show them yet, but be patient! I tried so far different ways of twills, stripes, Monk's belt, overshot, lace. I played with different colors as well as with different threads (linen, cotton, silk) trying to figure out what is more suitable. I think this one will make a pretty nice upholstery for chairs and couches and it reminds me Bargello in needlepoint. I wonder how it will look like if I use different shadows of the same color?


I love it! I love it! I love it!

What do you think?

Happy mining,
Natalia

Beautiful work, Natalia. It seems much faster with a real loom. My beading loom is a far cry from that one. I envy you.

Beautiful work! I'm looking forward to seeing the other patterns you've woven. I agree it would be perfect to upholster chairs.
