Weave Got It Going On

I spent the entire weekend home, catching up on TV shows and practicing my brush lettering (as evidenced by another “new” layout in less than a month, haha). My best friend asked me to come up with a design for her tattoo and I’ve been having fun drafting different designs in between sleeping and eating all morning. 😛

Last week, I made my second woven wall hanging with the help of Weaver Fever-obsessed Mikko. I started out with this and promptly forgot about it because I didn’t have a needle to fill up the negative space left after I did a few waves. Used yarn from this Cath Kidston granny square pillow set that I never actually finished making (I made all of one granny square).

Then, Mix introduced us to wool roving—which you can use to fill up the empty spaces in your piece. They kind of look like foam or clouds, right?

I finished this one up with a full fringe and hung it on the Mrs. Graham’s Macaron Cafe’s hand-painted wall.

Can’t decide if it looks like the sky or the ocean. Either way, I’m pretty happy with how it turned out!

If you want to learn how to weave, too, you’ll have to wait till the next schedule on I Try DIY. I promise it’s not as lola as you think it is. Or it probably is, but who cares? 😛
