Wall weavings and a new loom

Montage

I’ve been working on small wall hangings using various recycled and natural elements. The pine needles are particularly tricky to work with. Clockwise from top right: 1) cotton, wool, pine needles, wood, leather; 2) Wool pine needles, leather; 3) hemp, cotton, wood; 4) Wool, pine needles, leather;  5) Wool, recycled sari silk, recycled tea bags, raffia, nettle yarn, handmade paper and watercolor. All are now available in my Etsy shop.

The big news is that I finally got my Saori loom. I am so excited and can’t wait to start using it. Will post photos soon of new projects.

Lastly, I finally finished this felted/linen/wool-embroidered and leather wristlet. Now available in my Etsy shop.

It sat on my work table for weeks just waiting for me to put the strap on. Sometimes things just fall by the wayside.

Well, that’s it for now. I hope everybody is having a great week.

More wristlets and some pouches

 

Happy Monday! Little by little, I’ve been working on items for my Etsy store. Yesterday, I posted about my block printing for new items I am starting to work on. Today, I am posting some finished items: wristlets and zipper pouches. All are made from 100% linen with various embellishments of felting, applique and Sashiko-style stitching. My favorite part of making these is the design and my least favorite is the cutting of all the pieces and putting in the zipper. I’m getting pretty good at putting in the zipper, but I still wish these little dogs I live with could pitch in and earn their kibble.
