Learning To Weave

I've been meaning to post this for a long long time now but I've been super busy packing up my life and moving back in with my parents because in 6 week's time I'll be moving to Vancouver, Canada! More on this in a separate post but for now I wanted to share my weaving project with you :)

You would have seen in my previous post, I made myself a mini weaving loom using some nails and an old photo frame. Things got even better when my lovely papa made me a massive loom which enabled me to create a larger wall hanging.


All the wool I used was from a charity shop, purchased by my mum (this project was a family effort!) and I basically taught myself some different weaving techniques through trial and error. I was super happy with how this beautiful hanging turned out. Since my move, my dear friend Morgan now has the hanging in her room. If you're interested in giving weaving it a go, I definitely recommend it. It's very relaxing when watching TV and really gets the creative juices flowing. You don't need expensive equipment to get started, you can even make a loom using cardboard!

Having finished my wall hanging I was then able to tick "learn to weave" off my new year's resolution list, more about that here. I'll be posting soon about another resolution that I've just completed and it was a rather tasty one ;) 

Hope you're well and sorry for the lack of posts!
