I picked up some tapestry threads, frame and incomplete long stitch pattern the other day for four dollars.. unbelievable huh? I really have no desire to complete the tapestry but immediately thought about weaving the threads into brooches.
Its quite relaxing to sit and get into a rhythmic motion of weaving even just for short spurts.
I can't wait to wear my brooch and my dress, but the dress will have to wait until warmer weather.. I purchased this lovely dress in Lazybones sale on line.
I got carried away with the process and played with the colours available. I think I'll head to the brighter colours soon when I next play with weaving
I've just today sourced somewhere where I can buy brooch backings and will go have a look tomorrow.
The one prepared above is wrapped around cardboard and has a woven backing (not very tidy and time consuming to produce)
Quite like the yellow - gives a nice fresh feel
Not to sure about this one but think I'll grab some beads and sew on the flower. Things always look better when they are finished off - but you get the idea right?
