The Woven Home
Easy Frame Loom Projects to Spruce Up Your Living Space
Rainie Owen, crafting instructor and founder of The Unusual Pear, shows readers how easy it is to create the handwoven home accents that appear in popular design magazines and online. Through years of teaching workshops to beginner weavers, Rainie has developed simple, key techniques, for achieving a wide assortment of styles and patterns. Readers will learn to create a luxurious, thick fabric with the Tabby Weave and add trendy textures to their weavings with the Soumak Braid. All readers need is a small, affordable frame loom - easy to find at any craft supplier or build at home with Rainie's quick method.
Readers handwoven textiles can be turned into amazing home accents, including a Geometric Throw Cushion, Market Tote, Faux Sheepskin Looped Rug and Framed Aztec Woven Artwork. Unlike knitting and crochet, there's no need to follow complicated patterns. Weaving is a satisfying, relaxing craft: the perfect activity while hanging out with friends or catching up on a favourite show. Customisable with colours, shapes and tassels, these projects fit any decorating style, and make fantastic gifts. Weavers looking for new projects, or beginners who want to pick up a quick, rewarding hobby, will enjoy adding these beautiful handcrafted items to their homes.
This book will have 20 projects and 75 photographs.
