Rug Made From Factory Seconds

24 May

For those of you who do not know… I have a day job! I really lucked out though, because I work in knitwear production, which means I have access to knitwear scraps and seconds, and you know I use the hell out of them, from making knit fabric for my quilts, to now using the flawed pieces for weaving.

I started work on this rug, and within about 6 hours, I had a nice 22 inch by 36 inch rag rug. I used polyester upholstery thread for the warp, and nothing but acrylic scraps for the weft. I think it turned out quite nicely, and I’m working on developing it into a class! Wish me luck!!!

‘The Woods’ Quilt

I’m not typically an earth tone person, but hey, I’ll tell you what… This shit is on hit! It’s made from quilting cotton, and knit acrylic fabric, that I even knit myself at work. I’m really digging the texture it lends this quilt. It also gave me an excuse to use up some brown jelly roll strips I had left over from another project.

Now I just have to find time to quilt it… Wish me luck!

Zelda Scarves!

20 Nov

I have so much to tell you all about; it has been a crazy week. Work has been insane, but at the same time, I really don’t mind it! I get to play with fancy textile equipment all day every day! Who could complain about that? One thing I have been doing after work is playing with the machines! I knitted these gorgeous scarves! Now that it is cold, I figured everyone would adore these! What do you think?

Infinity Scarf Made With Knit Fabric

9 Jan

So, I’ve never really worked with knit fabric before. I mean, I’ve made t-shirt quilts before, but I’ve never done any sewing project with knit fabric before. It was on the clearance rack at Joanns, so I bought some. This is my first time making anything with knit fabric, and it turned out great! I used the serger for most of it, and finished it off by hand. I even twisted to tube out as I sewed it. I think I’ll make another one tonight.
