Peg loom woven mask

A friend of mine has fallen in love with peg loom weaving and has woven her first mask on the peg loom.

This reminded me that I haven’t posted pics of a mask that I wove in December of 2013, after having a dream about a room full of woven masks— (oh my! I really should get back to weaving that dream into the waking world!)

So, here, belatedly, are a couple of pics of the first of the masks that I wove after that wonderful dream.

I wove this mask on my Dewberry Ridge peg loom, which is a joy to weave on. LINK to their site.

You can see more of this mask in the video tutorial that I made about how to weave circles on the peg loom:

I need more hours in the day….  🙂

Mardi gras butterfly masks

Somehow, I don’t think that I will ever go to New Orleans for the real Mardi Gras,

but that won’t stop me from celebrating in my studio!

I made these Mardi Gras masks with all kinds of techniques and things that I love:

Tatting, spool knitting, crochet, butterflies, Grandma’s vintage buttons, beads and other found objects, as well as woodworking.

Feels like a celebration to me!

Happy Mardi Gras!
