How to sew hand wovens together by hand

I have lost count of all the times that people have asked me how to sew hand woven fabrics together by hand.

This little video shows quick and easy ways of stitching together fabric that you have woven, no matter what loom you use:

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

Latchet Lucet – Working with different thickness of yarns

People have been asking about working with both thin yarns, threads and cords as well as thicker yarns on the Latchet Lucet.

This video shows the stitch wiggle trick that draws up the excess thread when working with fine cords, threads or yarns. As for thicker yarns, no problem- working with roving yarns makes very effective lucet cords.

Lucets are not like crochet hooks or knitting needles that have to be specific to the yarn.

You can work with a huge range of yarn thicknesses, types and weights of yarn on lucets. The one trick to be aware of with the Latchet Lucet is to keep the yarn that goes across the latchets at a very light tension, and then tighten the stitches up AFTER they are formed.

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!

Wonderful new Latchet Lucet

I am just over the moon 🙂

I love working with Lucet cords, and sometimes, I work with miles of them.

So, I wanted to be able to make oodles of lucet cords more quickly.

After a LOT of tinkering around, and much experimenting and many different iterations,  I was happy with the prototype for the Latchet Lucet.

I talked to Donna and Gary McFarland at Dewberry Ridge Looms to see if they were interested in making it.

Yes!

Yay!

Gary is a master craftsman and excellent designer.

He took my design and fine tuned and honed it and here is the result:

This glorious piece of work:

Here it is, attached to the table with the spiffy clamp that Gary found after a lot of research:

It is a very happy tool for co-creating with  the Thumbelina, Mollie Whuppie, Vasilisa  and Star looms.

(well…. any and all looms, really).

Here’s a video of it in action:

Here’s the link to order one:

The projects made with Lucet cords in the following videos work perfectly with the cords made with the Latchet Lucet:

It’s just sooooooooooooooo much fun!

Tapestry on the 3 Sisters looms

I made a video that shows how to weave square, triangle and diagonal motifs on the Thumbelina, Mollie Whuppie and Vasilisa looms.

But… it was 2 hours long!  Whoa!  That’s just too long.

So, I thought: I wonder if I can figure out how to ‘fast forward’ it?

And, I did!

But, I think that I got a little enthusiastic with the fast forward function- LOL!

I turned a 2 hour video into a 2 MINUTE video!

Prepare for take off… buckle your seat belt…. here we go!

Um…. next time, I might not speed things up ~quite~ so much!

Happy weaving!
