How to weave a vest on the Triangle loom- Part 2

In my previous post, LINK, I showed how to set up the loom, warp and start the weaving.

I posted the list of materials and equipment that you need to weave a bias vest on the 7 foot triangle loom.

In this video, I show how to finish the weaving, including:

Garden Shawl woven on Triangle loom

For a couple of months now, I have been working on a large project…

Garden Shawl  1 A(c)

I wove a shawl on my 7 foot Triangle loom from Dewberry Ridge looms:

Triangle loom notched neckline shawl (c)

And have been designing and weaving all manner of motifs on the Thumbelina, heart, dragonfly and 2 inch Wiz looms, to stitch to it:

Garden Shawl  1 (c)

I really don’t like gardening anymore, and would much rather be weaving…

Garden Shawl  1 B(c)

So, I have created a garden on a shawl…

To wrap myself in Garden pleasures all year round.

Garden Shawl  1 D (c)

That’s a dragonfly shawl pin that I made.

All the links to the videos to weave all the motifs are here on my blog and on my youtube channel,

so if you would like to weave yourself a fantasy garden, too, you can!

Just click on the Thumbelina category and follow those, or simply click on the back arrow, and you can scroll backwards to find all the tutorials.

Here’s a video slide show of the shawl:

The looms are all built by Dewberry Ridge Looms LINK

 

I am now moving deeply into a commissioned tapestry, so I won’t be here quite as often as I have been in the last few weeks, but I will be back!

Blessings until then!

Happy Weaving!

An easier way to weave hearts on the little heart loom

The other evening, I figured out a much easier way to weave hearts on the little heart loom that I designed, and Gary McFarland of Dewberry Ridge Looms makes.

A gift of love-A heart and hands scarf

I wanted to wrap my daughter with love, so I decided to weave her a stole or scarf that has the hand prints of our near and dear.

And in the hand prints, are little hearts that I wove on my heart loom. LINK for how to weave them.

I wove the triangles on the 14 inch triangle loom from Dewberry Ridge looms LINK

And showed how to do the chain stitch drawings: LINK

And, how to weave the flower from hearts: LINK

Because the scarf/stole/shawl will be seen from both sides, I stitched a heart to each side of the stole :o)

I plan on crocheting an edge around it eventually, but am holding off on that until we are sure that we don’t want more triangles added to it.

I love being able to pour my love into a special gift- with love in every stitch! 😀

In every stitch is a wish for happiness!

How to weave a flower on the heart loom

The Heart loom from Dewberry Ridge loom is such a sweet little loom 🙂 Here’s the Link to order one of them: LINK

I’ve woven some fun things with it:

Here’s the ‘How to’ that shows some of them: LINK

and how to make a butterfly: LINK

And, now, here’s how to weave a flower using the Heart loom:

The flowers can be used to embellish scarves, stoles, shawls, bags, vests, hats or other garments or pillows, throws, curtains….

To make the flower, you’ll need to weave 5 hearts in petal color and 3 in leaf color:

Fold the leaf hearts in half and stitch the edges.

Then, stitch the petal hearts together with one edge layered a little over the other, then stitch a button on for the center:

Then, stitch the leaves to the back of the flower.

If you are going to stitch a pin or a hair clip to the back of the flower, cut a circle of felt and stitch it over the messy ends on the back.

If you are going to stitch the flower to a garment or home accessory, don’t worry about the felt circle.

Just stitch the flower on, leaving the tips of the leaves and part of the flower petals free so they are dimensional.

Here’s a video showing how it’s done:

How to make a butterfly from woven hearts

I have been weaving up all kinds of sweet little hearts on the Dewberry Ridge Heart loom.

You can use the butterflies to embellish all manner of things: Toys, dolls, scarves, stoles, shawls, hats, bags, stitch a pin on the back to wear it as a pin, stitch it to a pillow, towels, blankets, throws, wraps…. etc 🙂

Here’s the video tutorial on how to make the butterflies:

Happy weaving! Happy butterflies! 🙂

Sweet little heart loom

A couple of weeks ago, I designed a tiny pinboard loom to weave little hearts- Here’s the link to that post HEARTS

copyright Noreen Crone-Findlay

I just loved the little hearts that I wove on the pinboard loom, but didn’t really like holding the foam in my hands while I wove.

I asked Donna and Gary at Dewberry Ridge Looms if they would make some heart looms, using my design, so other people could weave wee perfect hearts, too.  (Gary’s work is FABULOUS!  I love their looms) 🙂

They said sure, so Gary set to work and they now have lovely little heart looms!

I am just enchanted with the little heart loom- it’s beautifully made and is a treat to hold in my hand, and a pleasure to weave on.

I am thinking of all the wonderful ways of using the woven hearts… ooooooooh yes!!!!

I won’t be selling them, so you’ll have to go to their website to buy one. Here’s their link:  HEART LOOM

I have some fun projects in mind, and will post pics as soon as I get them done.

I think that I will probably make a video tutorial specifically about weaving with this little loom.  (One more thing for the ‘to-do’ list!)

Happy Hearts!
