Weaving with copper wire on weaving sticks

I have been wondering if I could weave with copper wire on my weaving sticks…. there’s a reason- I want a band woven with copper wire for a new piece.

And, the answer is, ‘Yes!’.

I made a little video about it:

Here are the links to the sources of the weaving sticks that I used in the video:

Thumbelina Loom- How to weave a Strawberry motif

 

A friend has been embroidering charming strawberry motifs and mentioned that she wanted to weave strawberries.

This totally inspired me!

And, so, I have designed a Strawberry motif to weave on the Thumbelina loom:

Thumbelina Loom Clasped Weft weaving techniques

Clasped weft is one of my favorite weaving techniques.

I  have  developed a way of weaving clasped wefts on the Thumbelina loom  that is ingenious and fun!

Why weave with just one color in a row when you can easily weave with more?

Clasped weft weaving is a way of catching one strand of weft with another strand of weft to give you 2 colors in one row.

This allows you to weave all kinds of color patterns that can look quite complex, really quickly and easily.

This video tutorial shows how to weave several clasped weft variations on the tiny Thumbelina loom.

You can also use this unique approach on other small looms.
