cloth weaving


 We just started our Cloth to Cloth online class with Jude Hill and our first project is to weave a base of fabric strips. This is the latest one that I made last night of silk kimono cloth that I rescued from Art From Scrap.
The next one is made of linen, indigo cotton and some shibori silk from an old kimono.
This one is made from hand dyed wool and the next one was my first one made with linen, cotton, and silk with some of the fabric hand dyed. This is very fun and addictive! It feels good to be using up some of the piles of fabric I have collected! Can't wait to see the weaving of my art pals here who are also in the class!
Off to the Farmers Market for some fresh produce! Have a great weekend!
