Teneriffe Lace- Pin Cushion How To

To make Teneriffe Lace, you need to have a flat, sturdy pin cushion that the loom sits on.

Here’s the list of equipment and materials that you’ll need to make your Teneriffe Lace Pin Cushion:

1- Corrugated cardboard

2- Sharp craft knife (do NOT use dull knives and always cut away from yourself)

3- A cutting board

4-Scissors

5- Fabric and felt to cover the pin cushion and to make the base

6- Needle and Thread

7- Thimble

Instructions:

1- Cut 8 circles of cardboard that are 4 inches/10 cm in diameter for the larger pincushion for your square loom.

2- The triangle loom works fine on a 3 1/2 inch/8.75 cm diameter pin cushion.  Cut 8 circles of corrugated cardboard for this pin cushion.  Note- in the video, I only cut 6 for the smaller pin cushion, which is okay, but 8 circles are better.

Now, the video shows how to put it all together:

Teneriffe Lace Weave Along Links

I absolutely love making Teneriffe Lace, and have designed a set of lovely little looms and a whole bunch of delightful projects to make with them.
I am making a series of ‘how to’ videos that show how to make all the shapes, and then how to use them to create lovely projects.
I’ll place the links to the blog posts that have the how to videos and diagrams on this post to make it easy for people to click on the one that they are looking for.
I designed the looms, but don’t have the time (I am working on another new book as well as a solo show of my new Woven Women- wow… busy!) or the equipment to be able to make the looms, so I have asked Donna and Gary McFarland of Dewberry Ridge Looms if they would make the looms.
Hurrah! They said yes!
To order the looms, please go to:
And, if you would like to participate in a group where you can join in the  Teneriffe Lace Weave Alongs in an interactive way, then you are welcome to join either or both of these groups.

Butterfly Woman Spreads Her Wings Tapestry

In 2012, I wove a tapestry that was quietly part of a series of tapestries that I have been working on for many years:

In the last few weeks, she has let me know that she wanted to really spread her wings….

So, I wove her a face on my hexagon loom from Dewberry Ridge looms: LINK

I built a little loom to weave hands for her, and stitched on butterflies that I had designed and crocheted many years ago.

I used really thick wire to make and armature for one of the larger butterflies.

And, then, she had wings!

I am so pleased with her, and she is very pleased with me, too!

She’s about 39 inches/100 cm  tall and her wingspan is about 22 inches (55 cm).

Here’s a little video that I made about her:

My book, Peg Looms and Weaving Sticks LINK shows you how to weave tapestries on the peg loom.

If you’d like to know how to weave tapestries on the hexagon loom, here’s a how to video:

 

After a very long, very cold and very snowy and icy winter, I do believe that Spring and Butterflies on their way!

3 panel Triangle loom shawl woven on 3 foot tri loom

Recently, I designed a fun shawl, and made a video about how to weave a shawl with a collar using 3 triangles woven on the 3ft triangle loom.

 

The border is made up of triangles woven on the potholder loom.

Here’s the video:  The video is full of hints and tips for triangle loom weaving in ‘outside the box’ ways.

Here are 2 ways of weaving triangles on the potholder loom:

I used the first method for this shawl: How to weave a triangle on the potholder loom: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6ahC…

How to weave a triangle on the bias on the potholder loom:

I made a separate video about how to stitch the pieces of the shawl together:

Mermaids woven on peg looms and weaving sticks

I have always loved mermaids, and I am totally addicted to weaving mermaids these days.

I’ve  made a video showing how I used my Mermaid pattern on etsy to weave Mermaids of different sizes  on peg looms.

I took the original Mermaid that looked like this for the pattern:

And added a wooden face, leather hands, a little tatting, and a seashell:

She was woven on 1/4 inch diameter weaving sticks and is about 11 or 12 inches tall.

Also woven on the 1/4 inch diameter weaving sticks is this Mermaid, woven with hand spun art yarn and  needle felted:

 

The same etsy pattern can be used to make totally different mermaids by changing the size of pegs or weaving sticks used and different thicknesses of yarns.

I used the smallest pegs on my 6 inch peg loom to weave the smallest Mermaid, who’s about 7 or 8 inches tall.

She’s woven on the 1/8th inch pegs.

The Mermaid woven with the 3/8 inch pegs is about 20 inches tall:

I did some geometric pattern weaving in her body, but it’s a little hard to see in this pic.

I used 2 strands of a very bulky chenille yarn held together to weave the largest Mermaid, who is around 28 inches tall.

When I was weaving the different sizes, I did tweak the pattern somewhat to adjust for the differences in the size of the pegs and thickness of the yarns.

Here’s the link to the pattern in my etsy shop:  LINK
(sorry – it’s not free)
Happy weaving and happy Mermaiding!

The looms are from Dewberry Ridge Looms: LINK

 

My book: Peg Looms and Weaving Sticks is available from all your favorite online book sellers, and can be ordered through your local book store.  It’s full of weaving yes-ness!

Here’s the video about the Mermaid dolls:
