Mermaids mermaids Noreen makes mermaids

One of the members of the Peg Loom weaving group on facebook just asked what people were weaving on their Peg looms, and my response was ‘Mermaids!’- which is a very normal response for me.

In fact, recently, a friend introduced me to her sister’s kids, saying- This is Noreen- she makes mermaids. Indeed I do!

I love to weave mermaids and to carve them in wood.

Here’s a video of a ‘swoop’ (I just made that up as a way of describing a group of mermaids) of new mermaids that I have woven up using a pattern that I designed for my etsy shop.

Here’s the link: to the pattern: https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/91030975/pdf-pattern-for-mermaid-woven-on-the?ref=shop_home_active_1

The Peg Loom in the video is from: https://www.dewberryridge.com/products/peg-looms-1

A few years ago, I made a little video showing a different ‘Swoop’ of Mermaids. Here’s the link to that video:

Blue Butterfly Mermaid Tapestry and how to weave tapestry on a triangle loom

When someone on facebook asked if it was possible to weave tapestry on triangle looms, I thought: ‘Great question!’

and then … ‘Of course it is!’

and then….’I have to try it to see if it really is!’

I had been mulling over weaving a new Mermaid tapestry for quite awhile, and had woven narrow bands on my Structo 4 harness loom as well as my rigid heddle box loom, to start.

I had a big ‘aha!’ about weaving the rest of the mermaid using my 14 inch triangle loom from Dewberry Ridge Looms.  LINK

Because there are a few things to know about weaving  tapestry on a triangle loom, I made a short video as part of the video about the Blue Butterfly Mermaid tapestry – it’s close to the end of the video.

I used  other looms to weave the other elements of the tapestry: a hexagon woven in copper wire on the Lily Speed o Weave Loom, narrow bands woven on the 4 harness vintage Structo loom, narrow bands woven on a rigid heddle box loom, 2 small triangles woven on the 7 inch Lil Weaver loom from Dewberry Ridge Looms and some tatting.

The hair is twisted cord made with a cord twister from Lacis.com.

The metallic threads used in the tapestry are from Kreinik. LINK
