Fabric Scraps Weaving

This is my first attempt at weaving, using a children’s loom kit and off-cuts from recent sewing projects, retrieved from my scraps bin. The children’s loom only allows for a small number of warp threads so I’ve made a larger loom and I’m planning a larger weaving with my naturally dyed yarns.

♥ Are you joining in with Heather’s Sundress Sew-along (01st July – 31st August)? You can sew any sundress, who could resist!

♥ I’m also planning to take part in the Sewcialists Lingerie Sewing Month during July.

♥ And… the International Anna Party taking place on Instagram (17th – 18th July). (P.S. Elle now has a blog – yay).

♥ I love the crafty merit badges released for Fancy Tiger Crafts’ 9-year anniversary.

♥ Oh wow, Yoshimi made parasols!

♥ Shenmue 3 is going to be made! I didn’t think it would ever happen. Show their Kickstarter campaign some love.

♥ Fringe Association have a 3rd hatalong, with a lovely free pattern Hermaness Worsted by Gudrun Johnston

♥ I’m still rewatching this retro Game of Thrones video game that never actually existed, Gamey Throne, via Ashens. I’m also playing the Telltale Games Game of Thrones game and loving it.

♥ Woolful is hosting a Knitalong for Hannah Fettig’s new book, Home and Away. My copy just arrived and I can’t wait to get started. I think I’m going to start with Hancock.

♥ Andi Satterlund’s new collection Quiet Days is beautiful. I love the Conservatory Cardigan and I didn’t know I needed a vest until I saw the Nosegay Vest.

Wool People 9 is out. Gyre is just lovely.

♥ Do you follow Harry on instagram? I love his illustrations so was very excited when he illustrated me. I’m wearing my Clemence Skirt, with cacti illustration.
