Weaving

Early Spring Craft Index: "Punched tin" and "Up-cycle" and More!

Signs of March!

March and April are usually the months during which, in addition to playing with Easter Eggs, I am often engaged in working with "tin" or sharing ideas for reuse and recycle. And after five years of blogging, I have assembled a nice collection of tutorials in both catagories! So - if you are interested in either of these crafty subjects - keep reading!

How to Make 3-D God's Eyes!

God's Eyes 3-D

My friend Michelle has inspired me on more than one occasion to think about the crafty possibilities of cereal box cardboard! Guess what - I just used it again - to make God's Eyes! And turned what was at first a negative outcome into a very cool new way to make God's Eyes! 3-D God's eyes!

You see, the problem that occurs when using cereal box cardboard for the supports is that after winding the yarn about four times, the God's Eye will begin to curve. No stopping it!

Weaving # 5: Weaving on Objects - Recycled Cardboard Containers Make Great Looms!

P1190928

I have been weaving on a little different kind of "cardboard loom"! Weaving on cardboard objects! In this case cardboard containers! The weaving becomes part of the container, embellishing and strengthening at the same time.

Weaving #3: Giant Teneriffe Snowflake (or Mid-Sommer Sun)

Giant Teneriffe snowflake

Right in the middle of writing the tutorial for making Teneriffe Snowflakes (post is here) I started wondering if I could make a simple Teneriffe Snowflake on a knitting loom. So I dropped everything - pulled out the loom and a bit of bulky weight yarn and this is the beautiful result!
