After the white on white soumak bag I see to have the weaving bug again. I am hoping this one turns out to be a bag also.
I have a gecko design that a friend of my stepdaughter's, Tara, did for me years ago. We were having a bon fine and a cook out while all of us ladies worked on our craft projects. This teenage boy sat down and graphed it out for me so I could bead weave it...somehow I never got around to it. I have had this piece of paper, with all of its stains and such, for over ten years trying to figure out how to do something with it.
Long story short I was going to weave it into this piece, but the graph calls for more warp threads to the inch (up and down threads) than I can use on this loom with this thicker cotton yarn.
Sooooooo, it is one of my " wing it, design it as I go" things once again. It happens that's what I'm best at anyway.
So here is the beginning. Let me know what you think.
Marci, I thought it was blue...but it is more purple than blue......periwinkle????
Oh yeah, the weft (horizontal threads), I spun that cotton myself! How cool is that?
