i am so very delighted to share with you my very first woven wall hanging! i have to admit, i was so scared to start this project. i looked at my empty loom for months, overwhelmed by the possibilities and not knowing how or where to begin. but as i always say, the hardest part is just getting started. once i actually did, i had so much fun! i think it's officially safe to say I'M HOOKED!
i wanted to create something whimsical, feminine and fluffy (as my husband calls it) for our newborn daughter, ollie doe. so of course, i had to add her name in tiny gold letters! i absolutely love the way it turned out and can't wait to start making more of them.
i definitely had a few favorite tutorials i referred to and a couple of resources and tools that i fell in love with as well. just in case you're interested in diving into the world of weaving, i'll share them with you as well!
favorite tutorials along the way:
favorite tools i used along the way:
loom from wood creek looms
gold letters from BBB supplies
handmade tapestry bobbins
copper pipe from lowes
i got most of my yarn and roving from a semi-local yarn shop, silver threads and golden needles (not available online).
a splash of gold and my daughter's name.
and just for size reference, here she is! you know she's big when i could hide behind her 39 weeks pregnant. ;)
