How to use Lucet cords to embellish garments

Lucet cords are great for making a favorite garment even more special as they make gorgeous embellishments on clothing.

. The Latchet Lucet allows you to make miles of lucet cord quickly so you can add fab flourishes to garments that you are sewing yourself or to make store bought clothing one of a kind.

This video gives tips, hacks and techniques on how to successfully apply lucet cord to clothing, but you can just as easily add it to curtains, hats, bags or pillows.


The Latchet lucet can be purchased from: https://www.dewberryridge.com/products/latchet-lucet#

The patterns for the asymmetrical jacket and vest came from the book: Bold & Beautiful Easy Sew Clothes by Habibe Acikgoz. ISBN:978-1-250-02365-0 published by St. Martin’s Griffin

Here’s a video showing how to apply lucet cord to clothing:

One handed Lucet cord on the Latchet Lucet

In my previous post, LINK, I introduced the wonderful Latchet Lucet that I designed and Dewberry Ridge looms is building and selling.

A lady asked me if it’s possible to make lucet cord with just one hand when using the Latchet Lucet.

My first response was- Of course!

Then then, I thought: Oh! I should try it…

And I did, and it works great!

I made a little video showing how to do the One Handed Lucet Cord (very Zen 🙂  )

I am so pleased that people who have an injury or a challenge of some other sort will be able to create beauty with the Latchet Lucet!  Yay!

My Celtic Interlace necklace pattern in my etsy shop works great with Lucet cord: LINK

All the lucet cord projects on my youtube video channel LINK work beautifully with the Latchet Lucet cords.

Here’s the link to buy the Latchet Lucet: LINK

Happy cords!

Woven Venus of Willendorf

For the longest time, I have been meaning to design and weave a Venus of Willendorf that would be the same size as the original tiny statue (4 inches/10 cm) tall.

So, I finally sat myself down and worked it all out!

And, here she is:

While I was photographing the step by step photos, the sun moved across the windows in my studio (it does take all day to do step by step photos), so I chased it around in the studio so I could have little bits of rainbow in the photos.

Luckily, because we are still in ‘Very Long Day’ mode here, I had lots of hours to chase those rainbows!

By the time I finished the Venus of Willendorf, I had to go to the kitchen to follow the rainbows….

and was delighted that I was able to find a handful of rainbow just waiting for me to pour it into my dolly!

She also posed in one of the Jade plants in my studio:

and on the woven placemat that I used as the backdrop for the step by step photos:

I take hundreds of photos when I am doing the step by steps, because I want to be able to capture the essence of each step, ‘just so’, as I think that we have all become visual learners nowadays, and good pics are essential to showing how to do things.

It makes the editing process long and slow, but, I think it’s worth it to make a good pattern.

She’s woven on my beloved potholder loom, and her hair and arms were made on the Lucet.

She’s just the loveliest little handful- so comforting to give little squeezes to.

The pattern is in my etsy shop:

Happy weaving, and enjoy the sweet summer rainbows! 🙂

I absolutely love Lucets.

I have designed and made a very small lucet that is my all time favorite.

It’s only 2 inches by 2 inches, and so it’s so easy to take with you wherever you go.

I am selling them in my etsy shop, here:

I’ve made 4 video tutorials that show how to use the Lucet to make cords, and then some wonderful things to make with them.
