This project is based on a weave-along that has now been turned into a downloadable project tutorial that you can download here.
Tiny tapestries have become a little bit of an obsession around here. They’re perfect for anyone wanting to experiment with colors, materials or design or for the more impatient-to-finish among us. Plus, the final products are adorable and perfect for gifting. This kit has supplies to make two different tiny (5" x 2.5”) wool tapestries in one of two gorgeous colorways. One tapestry will be an abstract piece using a technique called soumak and the other will be a geometric chevron design. The ebook (linked above) will guide you through set-up, warping, weaving and finishing both tapestries.
Included in the kit:
-12 8-yard bobbins of 3-Ply Persian wool yarn in one of two colorways (Brights or Pastels) or both colorways.
-60 meters of hemp warp
One colorway makes two tiny tapestries (with LOTS of extra wool to play with) and two makes at least four.
Also recommended for this project:
-A tapestry needle. We love these bamboo needles!
