Woven Window Hearts

One of the lovely things that people are doing during the pandemic is to hang hearts in the window to cheer up passers by.

This video shows some of the window hearts that I have woven on the 6 inch heart loom that I designed and Dewberry Ridge Looms makes.

The woven window hearts are a great way to use upcycled t-shirt yarn, fabric strips made from torn up worn out household linens or outgrown clothing or bulky yarn or roving or 6 inch potholder loom loops.

I embellished some of the hearts with little dolls that I made from my Rosie Recycle eBook: LINK

The looms are available from LINK

Wishing you all the best- stay well, stay at home if you can, and weave some love into your community!

Wearing my heart on my sleeve- 4 and 6 inch Heart Looms

I am so pleased!   I’ve been working with Donna and Gary McFarland of Dewberry Ridge Looms to create some absolutely lovely new Heart Looms.

They are 4 inches and 6 inches and have a wider sett than the tiny 2 inch looms.

This means that you can weave thicker yarns, roving, fabric strips, t shirt yarn on them. Lots of eco-friendly options!

And on the 6 inch Heart loom, you can even weave potholder loops, too.

One of the first things that I did with them was to mend my much loved, and very well worn woven jacket by stitching and felting one of the hearts to repair a frayed section on the sleeve.

Here are the links to buy the looms:

Thumbelina Loom Tapestry Techniques and Tips

I have been enjoying weaving tiny tapestries on the Thumbelina loom so much!

People have been asking me to show them how to weave tapestry techniques on the Thumbelina.

Here’s a YouTube video that I made to show some techniques and tips for weaving tapestries  on the Thumbelina Loom.

I hope that this video will inspire you to try some fun things on your Thumbelina loom!

Here is the cartoon for weaving the heart shown in the video:

Print it so that each little template/cartoon is about 2 1/2 inches tall by 1 1/2 inches wide.

Here’s the link to order them from Dewberry Ridge looms.   I designed the Thumbelina, but I don’t make or sell them.  That’s not my strong suit… designing fun things to make with the tiny looms is!   LINK
