Warp – 16/2 Cotton used double
Weft – thin – 4/8 cotton, thick 4/8 cotton tripled
Very hard beat!
Rep!! Cool….I like how you worked in Christmas colors and themes, or am I not supposed to see wreaths when I look at this?)
I just wove my first piece of rep and was surprised at what a hard beat I needed. (I was tired and didn’t always get there actually.)
Do you have plans to make this sample into a finished object?? I am full of questions. I’ll check back later to see if there are answers!
Yes – you are supposed see the wreaths or baubles or something like! Glad you did! I think it would make great Christmas placematts – very stiff so would sit on the table well. Probably do a fringe or weave the ends with sewing thread for a nice hem. Had to beat so hard the loom was moving and had to be put back every so often.
Lovely Evelyn! I have a couple of Main Selander’s books but I need to go take a better look. Love it. They would make great place mats or maybe a long runner for the holiday table! That would be a lot of beating though. 😉
Rep weave is on my list of things to try in 2010.
My looms move too. I put little rubber bumpers into my floor in front of the rear legs to keep them from walking on me. With 8 dogs who worries about two tiny holes in the floors at this point!
