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 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

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!
