If you read my IRCC3 update, you may have noted that I'm working on tablet weaving to incorporate into my new costume. So, to this end, I crafted myself a very basic loom.
There are already parts of it that are not-so-steady, and I can see where I'd make improvements, but for my first ever woodworking project, it still does the job!
Unfortunately, a modified kivrim pattern turned out to be a little much for my first tablet weaving project in quite some time, and many, many mistakes were made before I got the pattern right. Even after I declared the issue resolved, I had to rip back and start again.
The final product is about 125cm of useable braid, about an 1"1/4 wide, which annoyingly, is too short my my needs. I may just piece an extra piece onto the end, so all that work doesn't go to waste. Short as I am, I still need a good 150cm length for the centre front seam on my planned dress.
The final pic shows the braid against the wool fabric I'm using for the veste. I can't wait to see all of it in place.
Note: Blogger is being rather annoying this evening, and won't let me add in my pictures. So those will be added as soon as
ETA: Now with pictures!
