So what do you know about weaving? All I know is that I know nothing. I am playing along, playing around and having fun. Here I have two colors and I am working with them at the same time, twisting them as I return on the other movement of the shuttle. In these pictures you will see the different ways I am playing with two strands of colors.
On some of the rows the browns are double, then the orange, but that is using two strands as weft and utilizing a single warp. I alternated colors , then I didn't. What I found is how much fun can weaving be when you are just making cloth.
I am all about texture and my hats are always an inspiration after I made them. Some people don't realize that I make my hats out of the blue, the ideas come from the ethers and then I usually reverse engineer the pattern, which usually comes out a bit different than the original pattern. I am going to transform weaving as well, I want to inspire you to play with making fabric.
The picture below is a bag that I am working on, I am remaking the bag with the cloth I am making. The pictures at the beginning of this posting is what I am going to use for the sides of the bags, then I am going to create more cloth for some fun handle coverings for this bag. What is exciting to me is that I have discovered double strand weaving without reading about it or being taught. These are the discoveries that I treasure. This is Crafty Andy in his creative endeavor toward understanding the potential that weaving has for me. I am in a new Fiber Journey and I will take you along with me. Thanks for stopping by!
