A Little Bit of Weaving

…pun intended.

Today I joined Etsy Labs and Church of Craft for “Crafting in the Park.” This took place at the beautiful Brooklyn Bridge Park- Pier 1. Today was gorgeous; the weather couldn’t have been better if someone had placed an order. One of the crafts they were teaching was weaving… on a mini level.

Using a small piece of cardboard as the loom, the warp was created using butcher’s twine (I think that’s what it was) and embroidery thread as the weft. A tapestry needle served as the shuttle.

Once finished (which took over an hour, even for such a small piece), I brought it home, glued on a scrap piece of leather, and attached a pin back. Below are pics of the final product.

So I ended up with a tiny, wearable rug.
