Limited Edition of Neck Wraps

I got such a great response to my first neck wraps that I put on 5 yards of warp and had fun making wraps of varying widths and colors. They are a limited edition because I have other projects to work on so I don't plan to make any more. Flip through the slides to see them all.


wall hangings and NECK WRAPS WITH MATCHING JEWELRY

This project started when I decided to go through my necklaces and let go of things I rarely wear. At the same time I had a couple of yards left on the loom from the rag rugs and wall hangings. It ocured to me to incorporate my jewelry into a woven wall hanging. I thought to weave in individual beads but that turned out to be tricky so I decided to just leave the necklaces as they are and weave a background for them. I wove them sideways on the loom which meant I would have fringe on the sides of the wall hangings and each hanging would be about 32" long but only about 4" or 5" wide. I was delighted with the results. Click through the slides to see closeups and how the idea transitioned from wall hangings into neckwraps...


RAG RUG / WALL HANGING

 

This rag rug is made of white and turquoise terrycloth. When I was weaving it, my husband walked in and noted that if you used it as a wall hanging, then you wouldn't have to worry about the white part getting too dirty. His comments got me thinking about wall hangings and he is right, this one can be used either as a rug or as decoration.

WHITE, RED AND GREEN RAG RUG/  WALL HANGING / Table Runner

This rug contains pieces of some wonderful fabric from India that I enjoyed as a house dress for many years until it started tearing at the seams. Now it has taken on a new life and can be enjoyed as a rug or wall hanging or perhaps as a table runner.

EXPERIMENTAL RAG RUG

I tried something different on this rug. I added a line of thread between each line of rag. What I really like about this is the kind of squared design that it made.

I am loving these long bags. They are surprisingly comfortable to wear if you don't load them down too much and your wallet is very safe way down at the bottom of the bag.

Wall Hanging

My first wall hanging! I wanted to use up the strips of thread called 'loom waste' that get cut off at the end of a project so I used those as the weft (horizontal pieces of thread) with their ends hanging loosely. I love the patterns I made with just three colors on a gray warp.
