How to Weave Triangular Leaf and Petal Shapes on Pin Looms

I made this video and some others before all the grieving and conversation about needing to completely re-create the world as we have known it.

It felt to me that it was important to just be quiet and listen and learn and contemplate and donate and try and figure out how to move forward, so I didn’t post any videos for awhile.

I am convinced that it is essential to keep creating beauty, and so I am offering my videos again.

This one is about a process that delighted me- I figured out a way of making woven leaves and petals so I could make lovely woven flowers for some tapestries that I have been working on.

I hope that my work can be a source of inspiration and spark imagination as we all come together to build a world based on love, compassion and kindness.

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:
