something I am working on at the moment, grey wool garb, hand sewn.



Oh and a lined linen underdress I made couple of weeks ago, with a belt with tablet weaving.

Heres a belt I just finished using the braid, I would like to have used a blue braid and embroidered more but I am running out of time, I need to wear it this weekend.

Took the pics over white linen under dress, which I have added my braid to at wrist and neckline, so you can see how I use it  Grin





I am pretty happy and looking forward to making some more braid this weekend.

14  Tablet weaving , an epic story in Weaving: Completed Projects by ScrappySue on: April 25, 2012 04:01:55 AM
Hi , I was keen to try tablet/card weaving so had to make a loom.
I first tried to make one out of a clipboard but found it was way too small.



so then a chair seemed like a possibilty



I managed to make a nice metre and a half of braid, but lets face it, not a very portable option....



then I tried using a stool, converted and now christened, the "ankle loom"



and found it was easier to use the coffee table to measure the threads



I used up all the blue white and green thread in the house and made a three metre length of braid



Eager to test my meager wood working skills, I made a small loom, based on a loom I saw a lady make with a spice rack and two toilet paper holder, aka the "bog loom" short for bog roll loom.



It actually works quite well, though I still need a ton of practice  Grin



heres some 9o cm braids






and last night I made about two metres of dark red and white, not photographed yet,



if you made it this far, well done!
regards
S

my 6th braid, 1.84 metres, made this weekend

Have made a few things since I last posted, heres some pics of me wearing the red bliaut finished with a reversable cloak I have made.







I have also made a fully lined linen under dress, with tablet woven braid at neck and wrists, blue linen gown, and a blue wool cloak.
Still hoping to finish a head scarf, belt, and muff by the weekend if time permits.

well I finished the bliaut, and I am so happy with it!
Red cotton silk, hand sewn, took about two weeks in my spare time to make.





before sleeves, hehe


Also made a pink surcoat for my sister, who doesnt need it anymore, le sigh, so might just see if anyone else has a use for it.
Mostly machine made curtain fabric with a small amount of embroidery.





I am now working on a dark blue overdress and planning a pale blue underdress.
I am also going to make a fur lined muff and a cloak.
further down the list is a felted hat and spinning.
Regards
