YOU ARE LOVED pink banner challenge

challenge 16 x 144 inch door weaving banner, five days

Step one….material. Tea stained warp and fabric remnants.

Dyed hand spun news paper, spun paper bags and synthetic fabric.

Materials range from vintage fabric to an Hawaiian lei.

Step two….build the loom. Door reclaimed from the ally and cleaned up.

Ducted piping (actually an old lamp shade I had made out of duct piping) used to protect

the warp from the old door. Tension wood also reclaimed

(will later find out that there was not enough slack).

Step three….weave. Due to there not being enough slack the piece was not able to shift.

It got too tight halfway through the U, 30 inches long.
