I did a course looking at how to tapestry weave faces. 
Firstly a lego man.

A monster.


And using coloured warp for hair.

These are so great! Love the one with the fancy hair Wink.

Do you have plans to make any bigger pieces with the techniques you learned? Sounds like a cool class.

Thank you all for your comments!  I realised that it is pretty hard to weave a life-like face!  The warp hair is a good effect, the neck is done by pulling tight when turning (usually a big no-no, as it pulls your edges in), and the nose is done by creating slits (if that makes sense!).

craftylittlemonkey - I never really know what to do with these small samples, so thank you for the bookmark idea!

craftylittlemonkey - thank you!

I haven't had much time to weave lately, but hopefully this is me getting my weaving-mojo back!  Smiley
