Weaving + print = nice

This week I’ve finally finished my turquoise weaving project. It was made with ecru cottolin (warp) and turquoise/blue/orange cotton (weft). It shrunk quite a lot, so the question was : “What am I going to make of it ?” A table runner ? Placemats ? A pillow cover ?

And then I realised I still have a piece of cotton fabric with my squirrel designs on it. The squirrel design was also made by me by ¬†photographing squirrels, nuts, mushrooms and leafs while we were in Sweden. Then I’ve transferred these photos into a graphic design. I’ve picked the colours from the photos and had the design printed on fabric. Et voil√†, my squirrel design was born.

So this time I’ve decided to combine printed design with weaving. It took my half a day to make this pillow cover because the weaving cloth was very difficult to cut and sew. But hej ….who said designing was easy ?

I hope you like it : my weaving + print pillow cover squirrels.
