Mini Tapestry

This time I used the Lightning Weaver with an crochet thread for a warp. I hemstitched the ends, and now that I’m done I realize I could have moved each end closer to the hooks to give more weaving room. The weft is embroidery floss, probably too thin, but that’s okay. It’s bright and lively. Off the loom, this teeny rug measures 3.5″ x 3.5″ not including fringe. It took about four hours!

Things I learned from this project: my weft was too fine for the warp and lead to having to beat each row too much; color changes make for fun, interesting weaving; my left selvedges are far tidier than my right (but I’ve always known that).
