The Scarf Is Lava

11 Feb

We all played that game at some point or another, where you pretend the floor is lava… Well, I captured that essence in this lovely scarf woven completely from reclaimed factory scraps. I rejected hats from work for the warp and the weft. It turned out even more lovely than I had imagined, and let me tell you what, it is so warm!!!!

I’ve Been Busy

29 Dec

Work has consumed my life, as it always does this time of year, but now it’s calmed down a bit. I’ve been having a blast the past couple days with my free time, and I wanted to fill you in on what’s been going on. I’ve been pickling vegetables, making hot sauce, weaving a scarf, brewing kombucha, and few other things, but I promise to fill you in on all of it. Next post, I’ll tell you all about the kombucha, and a lot more! 

Wish me luck!

Looming Up A Storm

I loomed a lovely scarf with fabric strips for both the warp and the weft. I know… I’m a rebel!

The warp was some left over quilt backing, and the warp was strips of batik fabric I had chilling in a bag waiting to be used… Well, I found a project for them!

I’ll post pictures of the finished scarf later this week! I just have to unpack it!!!

Another Scarf Woven

I’ve been a busy fellow the past week and a half. I was in Minnesota last week, and I finally finished this scarf I stared months ago. (Yes, I brought my loom on vacation.) I also wove another scarf, and I’ll take pictures of that later this week when I get around to unpacking it. This is one of the scarves I brought with me to the Textile center in Minneapolis, and maybe, just maybe, I’ll be teaching a class on it next year… We’ll see!

Wish me luck!

More Scarves From More Scraps

16 Jan

I’ve been a busy little sewer! Well, at least I’m trying to be. When I started making these scarves out of my scraps I had no idea how much fun they would be! I have a green one currently in the works, as well as a pink one, but they still need to have the topper put on, and sewn more. The only trick is, you have to stitch enough to secure everything in place, but not too much to make it too stiff. It’s a little tricky finding the right amount, but once you get the hang of it, it’s so much fun.

Shimmer Scarves!

11 Dec

I’ve been having a blast with the knitting machines at work and decided to make a few of these over the last couple days. I made a couple for myself and everyone keeps asking where I brought it from, so I decided it would be wise to start selling them! What do you think? They are so soft, and so warm! You should check them out on Etsy and see more pictures and all the colors after the jump… Continue reading
