Prepping your weave to hang nicely

Prepping your weave to hang nicelyI’ve talked about this before, but I thought I’d touch on it again for those who will find it helpful. After finishing the non-loom weave, I saw that mine wasn’t hanging nicely on the wall. Some of the sides were curling inward and there were a lot of waves in the weave itself.

Luckily there is a really simple way to fix this and make your weave look much nicer laying against a wall. Continue Reading

I’m in Love with Weaving Rope

Weaving with rope

This is my first post in the new year!! To start off the new year, I wanted to talk about my love for rope.

I also love that it’s so strong and sturdy. If I weave some cotton rope into my weave, I know it will stay where I put it with little movement. Continue Reading

You can fix just a part of what you’ve already woven and I’m going to show you how. Continue Reading

Answers to weaving questions

I’m embarrassed to say I’m behind on my emails, but please keep emailing me your questions because they are the best questions and would love if everyone who wanted to weave knew how to weave!

One of the emails I was trying to catch up on asked about a cardboard loom where the number of slits made it so that it could only be warped starting at the bottom and ending at the top. As you may have heard, I often talk about staring your warp thread on the bottom of the loom and ending the warp thread on the bottom of the loom. This is only necessary if you are planning on hanging your weave from warp thread loops. If you aren’t planning on hanging your weave in this way or you can’t end your warp thread on the bottom, then that’s no problem. There are a lot of different ways to hang a weave (I’ve posted about a lot of them here). Continue Reading
