My first weaving | offthebeatenpress.com

I took my weaving class last month and loved it. My first little weavings left something to be desired, however. They were small testers that we made in class to learn the tricks and patterns. I started my first real one the day I got home from class. First I drew out some pattern ideas.

I used all neutral colors (shocker!) to match my house, but after finishing realized that my little brother & his girlfriend could use it in their place. I am planning on giving it to them the next time I fly out to California.

It came together really quickly. Which was great. I am getting then hang of it now!

The grey thin thread above was from my Mom. She gifted me a bunch of leftover bits of yarn that have come in handy as I’ve started on this weaving adventure.

I loved the texture in this fuzzy stuff. I bought it in both black and white to try out in future projects.

And here is the entire weaving! I am so happy with it. I am sad to give it away, but I will certainly be making more in the future.
