Handmade cloth




Here's just a small piece I wove to make into a summer vest-hopefully. I'm trying to figure out just how to cut it into the pieces I need without it all falling apart. This should be a challenge-but fun.

  1. That is beautiful! I am curious how you cut the woven fabric so it doesn't fray before you can sew it...that seems to be a whole new technique we must master as weavers. Looking forward to seeing what you create.

  2. Oh wow what a beautiful art cloth. I love the different colors and textures.

    Good luck getting it cut without it falling apart. Hmm, would steaming it to help it set work?

  4. Gorgeous!! You might try machine stitching along your cut lines prior to cutting. That should hold it together until its all sewn up. theoretically of course!

  6. Your fabric is just awesome! I agree with Mollyand dollie, you need to machine stitch it before cutting.

    You have inspired me to try my hand at Saori weaving. I've been talking non stop about it. I just need to get my current project off the loom and then I'm gonna do it. I have a 12" Ashford Knitters loom so my pieces will not be wide but I've been lurking on Ravelry on the Weaving the Saori way.

    Thank you for sharing and have a Happy Fiber Arts Friday!

  9. I meant to ask you whether you had made the bag you had with you on Friday and then we got to talking about the fleeces. (By the way, I found your blog when I googled "Wisconsin Spin In" and didn't make the connection til after you left). So glad you got to stop by and I hope you enjoy the fleeces.
