Woven Star Baby – Part 2

In Woven Star Baby- Part 1, I showed you how to shape the body, and make the Star Baby’s face.

Here’s how to finish the Star Baby:

ARMS:

Weave the yarn ends into the cord up to the middle.

Place the arms behind the body and stitch to the back.

STITCH THE STAR TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD:

Using the needle and thread, stitch the head to the star.

FINISHING:

If the Starbaby is going to be a hanging ornament, leave strands of yarn at the top point of the star and tie a knot about an inch/2.5 cm from the star point. Trim.

If the Starbaby is going to be a pin, stitch a pin to the back of the star.

Weave in all ends.

I added a little heart sticker to the chest.  You can cut one or punch one out of paper and glue it on if you don’t have heart stickers.

Sweet Dreams and Happy Weaving! ❤

Woven Women- Essence

For the last few months, I have been working on a very large mixed media tapestry in my series of ‘Woven Women’.

This one is called: ‘Essence’.

She’s over 6 feet tall, and has about 2 feet of warp strands hanging below the lower edge, so she’s about 8 feet tall in total.

I used many different looms to weave her…. beginning with my ‘Story Loom’ (designed by Susan Barret Merrill of

Weaving a Life LINK)

I also used:  A rigid heddle loom, a narrow band weaving loom,  peg loom, weaving sticks, Star Loom, tatting and wire work.

I posted links to 3 videos that I made about various looms and techniques I used in weaving ‘Woven Woman: Essence” here: LINK

And, made a video so you can see her a little more clearly:

Happy Weaving, and here’s to Essence, however it reveals itself (or in this case: Herself).
