1  Where to start? Tapestry looms? in Weaving: Discussion and Questions by val`eria on: January 15, 2013 08:40:13 AM
So, I recently inherited these weaving tools, which I know nothing about. I think through reading a couple of sites, that I have two tapestry looms and a warping board? Any particular sites or links anyone could offer on where to begin would be super helpful. I am a knitter and felter and general crafter, but I've never used any kind of loom ever before. Thanks for any help, even if it seems obvious, it's not. I know nothing. Thanks!

Thanks! The flowers are just felt. Cut a circle out of felt. Cut it into a spiral. Roll it up like a flower and glue. Here's a very silly drawing in case that sounds confusing. Any size will work; the bigger the circle, the bigger the flower. And just make tiny ones if you want to add color inside.

Just finished hanging a new wreath. Used a grapevine form, made felt flowers, and collected pinecones from the neighborhood.

5  ugly chair re-done. in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by val`eria on: October 10, 2008 02:23:38 PM
We had this ugly chair. The cushion fell down (slipped) all the time and it was stained and ugly. We're also getting ready to move, so I've been contemplating getting rid of the chair or fixing it. I fixed it!


I got this beautiful fabric... regular price $40/m on clearance for $3/m. I replaced the top cushion, it was in pretty rough shape. I also made some ties in the back to keep the cushion from slipping.

Close up of how pretty it is:

Turned out not bad, eh?
