This is a clever idea from Jennie Rayment which involves weaving with small strips of padded fabric.
In this comprehensive workshop Jennie talks you through how to create the padded strips. She suggests that this would be a wonderful opportunity to use some of the coloured threads in your stash. And you will experiment a little with some of the variety of stitches that most modern machines give. If you only have zig-zag don’t despair as this can also look great.
In the example to camera she uses 8 strips to give three rows of weaving.
Jennie has a great tip about using your rotary cutting mat to help keep your rows straight. She also goes on to talk through the adding of borders – but don’t be a lopper!
Finally, there are suggestions from Jennie about the use of ribbons, using the texture on a bag front as well as thinking about plaiting the handle.
