Woven and Spun: In miniature
If you read Andy’s blog, then you got a behind-the-scenes sneak peak of these in progress. These are two of my new items for the holidays! Tiny weaving loom and drop spindle ornaments.
Weaving Looms: The looms are about 1 5/8 in high x 2 1/4 wide, warp and weft from sock yarn. The tiny shuttle is wound with the remaining yarn and attached to the loom. They will hang from loops of perle cotton.
Drop Spindles: The base of the drop spindle is almost exactly the size of a nickel.
Both are made from bamboo, laser cut by Ponoko.com. Andy designed and set up the file, sent it off to them and we got a whole sheet of laser cut bamboo a few weeks later.
These will be for sale in my etsy shop in just a few days and available at the Textile Center in November & December. Edited 9-17: These are now in my etsy shop!
