Pillow covers with strips of bedlinnen was something I wanted to try. I was not scared that it was difficult to weave, it was more that it would look like rubbish and that was something I certainly didn’t want.“Pillow covers with strips of bedlinnen” verder lezen
Weaving with strips of old sheets is a good way to re-use old curtains, bedsheets or old table linens.
Rip some old sheets in long ribbons and weave with them. You can leave the ends hanging on both sides as a design feature, or you can weave them in. It’s fun doing, weaving goes very fast en the result is amazing. Turn your old sheets or curtains into a new piece of fabric by weaving with strips. Make place mats, table runners, rugs, potholders or even cushion covers with your old sheets or curtains. I combined bed sheets with grey cotton cord and regular cotton yarn. You have to warp your loom with a slightly wider sett. I threaded my loom for a Monks Belt technique.
