Finishing projects

This chenille scarf is so soft and cuddly. It has wonderful texture and the black makes the colors pop. I only wish I had enough warp length to make two scarves and not just the one. The left over warp I wove off to make one or 2 small purses, yet to be assembled.

imageThis sewing kit I started in a HGA Convergence 2016 class “Books-Bags-Boxes and Beyond”, and finished at home. The rep fabric was woven by Lucienne Coifman. I added extra decorative stitching and beading for embellishment to personalize the kit.

I spent the past week at my sons home watching his dog while he has been on his honeymoon in Italy. I packed woven fabric and supplies to make purses, and bags for our guild sale in November. I cut out fabric and did partial assembly. Of course I did not bring along some key items needed for final assembly. So that will have to wait for my return home.

  2. I love the scarf! I bought a bunch of chenille then started reading about how hard it is to weave well–and prevent worming. Now I’m totally intimidated to even try it . . .

  5. The scarf is indeed lovely! I have avoided using chenille as well. Is the weft chenille too? I am always impressed with weavers who use it for warp and weft…it seems like it would be very tricky…
