Weaving becomes a pin cushion...
My goal for 2011 is to finish more of the projects I start as well as the works that are already in progress. I'm starting early and I actually finished something I started just a few days ago. I had fun with the old weave-it loom I found in my closet. It is in the previous post if you missed it. I didn't have the instructions at the time so I just did my own thing, first with a linen thread and then with silk ribbon. I later found the instructions and the website is on my sidebar if you need them. Maybe you have this old loom as well. Anyway, the weaving has now become part of a large pincushion. I like that it is square so that I can easily separate different kinds of pins and needles. It measures 5" x 5" x 1¼". Click on the images for a closer view.
