This is the final segment in my Weave a Tiny Tapestry series. Be sure to read the first three segments where we covered an introduction to important tapestry vocabulary and best practices; next steps (how to make and warp up a cardboard loom, how to start your tapestry with twining, as well as basic weaving and shape building techniques); and how to blend colours (using the foundational tapestry technique ‘meet-and-separate,’ creating smooth diagonal lines by being intentional about which warp we decrease on and learning to create the straightest possible horizontal line).
Today we delve into finishing techniques, and I will show you three ways to enjoy your finished tapestry: by adding twine to create a hanging decoration, turning it into a magnet, or adding a pin to wear it as a brooch.
You can find all the supplies I use in this tutorial at www.everleayarn.ca.
