Duck, duck, GOOSE! After several baby blankets in different cotton chenilles, I got a little wild with my goose and decided to shake things up a bit. Last year, I made a couple hundred yards of bias tape in a few different fabrics. Tonight, I used them as weft for a small mat the younger daughter has already claimed for her bath. Bonus!
Back to the baby blankets in 8/4 cotton. This time with some plain weave and pin stripes in teal and brown.
Melissa and her “new” 1960 Macomber 32” loom! I am now down to two Macombers, but neither of them are going anywhere. @doxiegirl #feistyhandwovens #macomberloom #handwoven #handweaving #weaversofinstagram #handweaversofinstagram
This just arrived from Camilla Valley Farm! Paired with black and slate grey, which are already in my stash, these will make linens for a November bride!!
That’s better! I could not go to bed unless I changed the tie-ups. The top is the right side of the fabric. Yay!
Back on the smaller loom: another baby blanket! This one is in luscious chocolate cotton chenille! Yum!
8/4 cotton is so versatile. I have been using it as warp for baby blankets with cotton chenille weft; however, I finally found my stash of rag weft. I saved most of it, as promised for a friend (@the_sher_bear), but pulled out the miscellaneous scraps that only had a few matching pieces and made a bath mat. It took all of a hot minute. Lol. Now, I am back to baby blankets, but I am testing cotton boucle. So far, so good!!
Maysville 8/4 cotton for baby blanket weft! Yay! #feistyhandwovens #macomberloom #handwoven #handweaving #weaversofinstagram #handweaversofinstagram
