You may know the old saying....
"when life gives you lemons...
you make lemonade."
This is my attempt at doing that.
These are the lemons.
Is my YUMMY lemonade.
I used my rigid heddle loom....
cotton thread for the warp
lots of 1 1/2" strips of fabric!!!
Tablerunner is 11"wide x 37"long
That's some mighty fine lemonade.ReplyDelete
How'd you do that?ReplyDelete
I used my loom and wove the cotton strips! Fun. FUN!Delete
Beth you are so talented. I love it. Hugs,ReplyDelete
Yummy is right, Beth---I love it!ReplyDelete
I love it! How big is the loom? Is it your first loom? Would you start with another type rather than the rigid heddle you mentioned? Cheers! ToniReplyDelete
That is wonderful. Where did you get your loom?ReplyDelete
how clever you are! I see now your etsy shop is up and running - or maybe it's always been and I'm out of touch?ReplyDelete
Love that! I have a wallhanging that I bought on vacation one year. It's from fabric strips from old clothes. The shop had looms and baskets of fabric strips for anyone to play with. I am itching to get a loom but I don't have enough time for the hobbies I already have, lol. Can you post about your loom and how you use it?ReplyDelete
Your lemonade is delicious . I'm still thinking of the loom but waiting as I too already have many things on the go.ReplyDelete
Those lemons made great lemonade! I like the fact that the graphic quality of the checked fabric still appears in the table runner.ReplyDelete
a perfect way to use up those lemons...now I want to get my little loom out...sigh...please send more hours in the day...ReplyDelete
That looks great. I have 6 rugs (2' x 3') that I made with old ugly fabric. They transform the fabric. I told my husband that each of those rugs is probably worth $300. They wash great. I used the directions in a book from 1997 called Rugs from Rags. It gives directions on making a loom for both rug size and placemat size pieces.ReplyDelete
That is such a fabulous table runner! You sure know how to make delicious lemonade!!ReplyDelete
Nothing says "homey" like something hand woven. You are getting really good at it. Love these colors together like this. Wouldn't have made as nice a quilt.ReplyDelete
i like your lemon aid......ReplyDelete
surely its not 5c a cup???
It turned out great! Love the colors!ReplyDelete
And just when I had gotten over wanting a rigid heddle loom!! Drat!ReplyDelete
Your table runner looks great!
Well My My My!! You are soooo creative girl!!ReplyDelete
Love it and love your attitude lady~ReplyDelete
That is so pretty! All those fabrics go so perfectly together.ReplyDelete
Your runner is very attractive. You wouldn't know what kind of lemons you used. A perfect solution to some of " those" fabrics we all have.ReplyDelete
