My take on "The Band Wife" project in Rachel Denbow's book DIY Woven Art

I love this book. If you're interested in learning how to weave, this is the resource for you. Rachel has mad teaching skills.

This project was adapted from a project featured inside her magical book. The pictures are fabulous! There are tutorials for lots of different woven projects and is a great resource for both seasoned and new weavers. Get a copy and start weaving!

Pom-Pom earrings for sale!

Well, almost for sale. I'm going to list each pair on Etsy by late next week, but I'm waiting to get more photographs. Consider this a preview!

These fur-like earrings are made from wool roving. They are super soft and light weight. Each earring is gold and nickel-free.

Measurements (both wool roving and classic pom-pom):

From tip of earring to end of pom-pom: 3 1/4"

Pom-poms: 1 1/2" 

Some of the pom-pom earrings are shorter and are about 2 1/2" from the tip of the earring to the end of the pom-pom which is why they will be listed individually.

I'm also offering classic pom-pom earrings which are made from various types of yarn. Still light and soft, but a different texture and color variation.

I will advertise when the earrings are live! In the mean time, if you want to claim a pair, let me know what color and I'm happy to hold them for you (especially if you're local)! 

 

Woven Rug (Work) Day 3!

...finished!!

This rug took me three working days to complete. Super easy. Really fast. Thumbs up. The ends curled up a bit, so next time I'll adjust my tension when I get to the final few colors. I think this could also be caused by the woven trim, so I'll have to try another one to find out.  Regardess, I love the way this little accent rug turned out. I want to start another one, but am just about an hour away from finishing the woven design on my pillow before I can take it off the loom, so no rug work until that's completed. Sigh.
