I made this little woven wall hanging this week. I've been wanting to try loom weaving for a while, and while I was considering the options........make one from heavy card, an old drawer as one tutorial suggested, or buy one........... the magazine Mollie Makes, which I buy occasionally, offered a free loom kit with the last issue..... sold!
I didn't make it exactly as the kit, I used my own colours and gathered inspiration from the tutorials of hello hydranga ...... I like her style and her tutorial's were easy to follow, as well as a beautiful mess. Closer to home, I love the work of Mim Concepts, Weaving and Macrame Artist, she incorporates a lot of macrame and dip-dyed yarns, a look I love.
My little weave is about 9 inches long to the end of the white fringe and 7 inches wide. It was fiddly but pretty easy and I can't wait to make another......something big and bright I'm thinking.
This little one was a Christmas gift for a friend, happy Christmas, Lajla.
