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!

    Ummmm, how PERFECT?

    Yo have saved me the trouble of making stuff like this! Seriously! I have “make tiny cool fiber art stuff” on my task list. Now I can change that to “Get Becka’s cool tiny fiber art stuff so I can do something else!” AWESOME!

  4. I knew you would love them! (I couldn’t believe you hadn’t commented yet). 😉
