Woven Brooch

Woven and embroidered brooch

Woven and embroidered brooch

Reading various blogs my eye spotted an appealing  woven brooch –  and luckily my friend Erica gracefully responded to my enquiry by posting the full instructions on her blog Creative Dabbling.  I found them to be very clear and easy to follow; and the weaving process felt quite meditative and so relaxing.

A small adaption was required – french knots served to enhance my loose weaving … next time I will know better.

Erica described the process as being pretty simple and could be applied to add texture to textile art and ATCs.   

Do  visit Erica’s blog Creative Dabbling  – 

to see her tutotial or just dabble amidst her creative ideas.

    Don’t the varigated threads add lots of interest? I like how you used similar weight threads throughout… mmm might need to try that out.
