If you follow my blog you know that I picked up a new hobby - weaving. I finished my weaving sample and am really very impressed with the possibilities weaving gives. Since it was just a sample of little samples, I used some small pieces to upholster chairs.
I had this little boy from Heidy Ott and decided to change a seat cover.
After: the design reminds Bargello in needlepoint and was weaved with interesting combination of silk and very fine wool yarn, believe or not.
This Bespaque chair with a blue cover
was transformed in this chair with weaved chair seat in delicate green with fine cotton
I am not impressed with a result of upholstering of these 2 footstools, but it was only an experiment that is a lasting process...
This footstool was made by Elga Koster for me in 2010 http://elgakoster.blogspot.com/
This footstool was made by me, again as an experiment
So far, I love weaving and am willing to continue working on weaving different kinds of fabric suitable for miniature upholstery, curtains, rugs, towels, bed covers, even fabric for doll's dressing, but later about it...
