Teneriffe Lace Bookmark

Oops! I have been so busy that I totally forgot to make a post here on my blog about the Teneriffe Lace Bookmark.

Yup…. it’s been crazy busy here…. whew….. I’m working on one book, while doing revisions on another, researching the next one,  writing and designing the techniques and projects for new looms that I have designed, as well as all kinds of family stuff…. yup…. busy!

Teneriffe Lace- Pin Cushion How To

To make Teneriffe Lace, you need to have a flat, sturdy pin cushion that the loom sits on.

Here’s the list of equipment and materials that you’ll need to make your Teneriffe Lace Pin Cushion:

1- Corrugated cardboard

2- Sharp craft knife (do NOT use dull knives and always cut away from yourself)

3- A cutting board

4-Scissors

5- Fabric and felt to cover the pin cushion and to make the base

6- Needle and Thread

7- Thimble

Instructions:

1- Cut 8 circles of cardboard that are 4 inches/10 cm in diameter for the larger pincushion for your square loom.

2- The triangle loom works fine on a 3 1/2 inch/8.75 cm diameter pin cushion.  Cut 8 circles of corrugated cardboard for this pin cushion.  Note- in the video, I only cut 6 for the smaller pin cushion, which is okay, but 8 circles are better.

Now, the video shows how to put it all together:

Teneriffe Lace Weave Along Links

I absolutely love making Teneriffe Lace, and have designed a set of lovely little looms and a whole bunch of delightful projects to make with them.
I am making a series of ‘how to’ videos that show how to make all the shapes, and then how to use them to create lovely projects.
I’ll place the links to the blog posts that have the how to videos and diagrams on this post to make it easy for people to click on the one that they are looking for.
I designed the looms, but don’t have the time (I am working on another new book as well as a solo show of my new Woven Women- wow… busy!) or the equipment to be able to make the looms, so I have asked Donna and Gary McFarland of Dewberry Ridge Looms if they would make the looms.
Hurrah! They said yes!
To order the looms, please go to:
And, if you would like to participate in a group where you can join in the  Teneriffe Lace Weave Alongs in an interactive way, then you are welcome to join either or both of these groups.

Antique Teneriffe Lace Loom

I have been absent from the world of social media for quite awhile- I was working to deadline on a book.

It swallowed me completely, and I vanished for awhile.  (I met the deadline! Yay!  And my editor likes it! Yay!)

But then, I got sick (ugh) and have been taking naps to recover, and didn’t have the jam to deal with blogging or dealing with the interwebs, so I didn’t.

Now, I’m on the mend.  And, working on new projects.

And taking lots of naps.

Oh my… this afternoon, something delicious happened that has made me need to pop back into the world of bloggdom.

A gift….

Today, I received a wonderful little package in the mail.

It was from my sister.  ❤

In the box was this little, oh so magical wee box of delights.

I opened the tiny old box and squealed with joy-

Such loveliness!

A treasure that my sister’s dear mother in law had found at an antique sale, bless her heart!

My sister has been cherishing this precious little box of heaven and, (bless her heart, too),  decided that I would enjoy it, so she mailed it to me. ❤

Sigh…. so much happiness in a little package!

I love Teneriffe lace and was ecstatic to see the awesome little brass loom.

And, a hairpin lace loom and some bone tools that will be lovely to use in small loom weaving.

I had to warp up the Teneriffe loom- how could I resist?

The little Teneriffe motif is wonky as all get out, but I think I should send it to my sister, doncha think?

PS:  (added the day after I originally posted about the Teneriffe Loom) I’ve been working with the Teneriffe Lace Loom, and have polished up my technique as I am working on a video to show how to do this technique with upcycled materials.

Here’s today’s version: 😀

Hexagon Loom Weaving- Teneriffe Lace Starburst Motif on the 6 inch hexagon loom

Lace making is one of my favorite things.

Weaving Teneriffe lace on hexagon looms is fun and quite easy.

I’ve made a  video tutorial that shows how to weave the Starburst motif in Teneriffe Lace on the 6 inch Hexagon loom from Dewberry Ridge Looms.

The motif can also be woven on 4 inch hexagons or any size hexagon loom.

The Starburst motif can also be woven on circular looms, too.

Teneriffe lace can be woven in any color:

The basics of how to warp the hexagon loom for Teneriffe lace and to work the running stitch at the center of the motif are covered in the Teneriffe openwork video

 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DyRCOtKNPB4

The motifs were woven on Dewberry Ridge looms: LINK

Kreinik metallic threads were used to add sparkle and lustre: LINK

Happy Lace making and happy weaving!

By the way:

The finished motifs can be used in all kinds of ways-

The Hexagon Shawl  LINK  would work beautifully in Teneriffe lace.

Hexagon Loom weaving- Teneriffe Lace on 4 inch hexagon loom

I love weaving Teneriffe Lace on the Hexagon Loom:

Here’s a how to video that focuses on techniques that I use for basic openwork Teneriffe lace on the 4 inch Hexagon loom from Dewberry Ridge Looms.

Openwork Teneriffe is quite easy to do and moves along quickly, once you have the hang of it.

I am using Kreinik Metallic thread in the video to add more lustre and sparkle to the finished piece.

Definitely work a few motifs with thread or yarn before adding in the metallic yarn as it’s tricky to work with.

Here’s a vintage booklet from the archives of the University of Arizona:

https://www2.cs.arizona.edu/patterns/weaving/books/archive_012.pdf

Techniques covered in this video:

1- Tips for working with Metallic threads.

2- How to warp the hexagon loom for circular weaving

3- How to work openwork Teneriffe lace on the hexagon loom. (I use a 4 inch loom in the video, but larger sizes work just fine for the openwork technique).

The next tutorial will show more advanced weaving techniques for Teneriffe lace on the  6 inch hexagon loom from Dewberry Ridge looms.

 

Happy weaving and happy lace making!
