Weaving in Miniature


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.

Before:


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...

Happy weekend!
Natalia

That is gorgeous Natalia! I love the bargello type weave and the delicate green one which reminds me of linen damask.

What great projects! It makes the chair/ottoman look so much more inviting & cozy.
How long does it take to complete?

Josje said...

Oh yes! That delicate weave would be so beautiful as curtains as well. I bet it drapes/falls very well... As you said, the possibilities are limitless!

Fantastic results... especially on the chairs it reminds me of that thicker upholstery fabric you'd use in real life for chairs. Great work!
