Wedding Bouquet collection, wrap #1

This wrap is woven with Supima cotton, hand-painted, and that’s the first time I worked with Supima.  And it stood to its reputation: it is smooth, elastic and soft – all of which is awesome for a baby wrap.   66 more words

The Wedding Bouquet, baby wrap #5

A wrap of all silk, hand-painted, woven in twill variation.  Light in hand, soft, with shimmery spun silk, it is quite lovely.  250 GSM, and with this particular silk elasticity, I hope the wrap will be very cush and supportive at the same time. 12 more words


Wedding Bouquet collection, shawl #6

One warp can become a lot of rectangular items: a baby wrap, a loop scarf, or a shawl.

This shawl is woven in diamond weave variation.   32 more words


Wedding Bouquet collection, loop scarf #10

Adding a cottolin weft to silk warp?  Why not!  Here is a loop scarf, woven in plain weave, with purple cottolin yarn.


Wedding Bouquet collection, wrap #4

This piece is woven with bourette silk that was twisted with bits of silk in different colours.  I believe that Habu labels this silk as “Tsumugi”, which is a correct name, as “tsumugi” means “bourette” in Japanese.   79 more words


Woven Burlap and Wool Basket

Recently I was sent some free burlap products to try out from BurlapFabric.com. They sent burlap in different colors, bags, strapping and a table runner. I gave some of these items to the women in my surface design group to play with and we will have more examples of using burlap soon. 861 more words
