My first ever weaving project is finally off of my loom!!
The end of the weaving - I didn't have very much waste left. Now I am using those end pieces to knit hexis!!
These are the cut ends still sticking out of the reed.
The other side with the weaving. Boy was I scared to cut those threads!! I kind of thought everything might just blowup, unravel, and I would be left with a huge pile of string :o)
Well, good to know that nothing too extreme happened! It was just unwound and unhooked the fabric from the loom.
After it's "haircut".
Both ends hemmed.
Now we have a nice runner on the piano.
I have started classes at Custom Handweavers and am totally loving them and our teacher. She is so knowledgeable and nice. Her teaching style suits me to a "T"! I have just finished the first class and cut my placemats from the her loom and have started the second class called "Patterns". I am in the process of dressing the loom. Can't wait to start the weaving!!
Look over at Tami's for more finished objects!
