Tina sent in a comment to the post yesterday about the laptop sleeve showing her own woven fabric sleeve. I loved the entire Flickr set showing her weaving process. The colors are beautiful and look even more amazing woven together.
I started weaving a few years ago and seem to enjoy making patterns and playing with textures more than anything else. I usually don’t have an item in mind when I start. You can only make so many scarves, right?
The last class I took was basically an open studio with access to a loom for a few months. So I picked out a few of my favorite threads, pored through some pattern books to try the open, lacy parts and started. It took a few weeks to finish the weaving but only an afternoon to put the sleeve together. I really like how it turned out. The pink, peach satin shows through the lacy parts, which adds a little something.
