Ok, so, this project is totally awesome and totally difficult to photograph. If you have a house that isn't 90% brown brick (mmmmm, so seventies!) it may be easier to take photographs that look pretty. BUT - pizza weaving! Yum!  I used my 6.5 x 9.5 inch loom and although when I started I wanted to make it bigger, after weaving all the pizza toppings I think this size was just right ~___^



Before I started, I drew a pizza slice on a sheet of A4 paper which I kept under my loom as I wove. I didn't follow it exactly, but it was good to have a guideline regarding where I should be putting toppings and how much to angle in the actual pizza slice.



Bonus project: Above is the first weaving I made. Now, let's be honest, it's pretty ugly. I started this project with no idea what the finished product would look like and since I was more interested in learning how to do different things rather than making a coherent design it's kinda ... odd.  I did have a lot of fun making it though! ^___^

I like them both and am so happy to see them posted here! I've got a great looking wooden table loom from a yard sale that has instructions only in German, lol, so I'm not sure how to use it correctly but you've encouraged me to try. I'm looking forward to making what may end up being kinda... odd to start Cheesy.

Thanks Puppy_girl!

Thanks craftylittlemonkey! What a great find; I hope you enjoy your loom ^___^ I think all first projects need to turn out a little weird, that way it's more impressive when you create something amazing ~___^

That pizza tapestry makes me smile! I think both of the wall hangings are great. I'm really loving all the little wall hangings that have been popping up on the internet and hope we see more from you! The pizza is definitely a fun twist on the more abstract and geometric ones Smiley

These are both a lot of fun!  The first attempt is very boho in styling to me. the tassel and fringe are wonderful.
