1  Twined Rug in Weaving: Completed Projects by Kbird on: March 17, 2008 08:44:26 PM
Hello -

This is my first post with pictures, so let's see if I can make it work!
Anyway, I just finiished my largest twined piece yet... It's a rug, 30" x 4ft.

I wove it on a tapestry loom using T-Shirts from the Goodwill bins.
The tapestry loom is a vertical 30in wide loom.



This was the first time I tried twining, with a tapestry style technique to weave blocks of color.
Here is the rug at 12inches...



And finally, here is the finished rug.  The photo I took distorts the image a bit...The edges are straighter than the picture shows.  Instead of leaving a fringe, I wove the ends back into the rug.
I think it turned out pretty well, for a first time larger effort.  The colors shown in the pictures are pretty accurate.



I actually got the idea of twining rugs using t-shirts after watching my Mom crochet rugs... Then I started making rugs with a "Knifty-Knitter", and then I decided to move to twining using a real loom.

I am amazed at the colors that are available using t-shirts!
