It's been a while since I've done a Weaving Wednesday, so here we go!
A couple of weeks ago Purl&Loop started sharing photos on Instagram detailing how to finish a weave without any fringe. This is something I've been trying to figure out for MONTHS. I've wanted to make some woven bracelets and necklaces but all the leftover warp was causing me ~problems~.
Annoyingly, Purl&Loop was sharing photos only ONCE PER DAY. I just couldn't be patient. They told me that they had a video tutorial on their website! Hooray! I watched it and got straight to business.
A friend had tagged me in an Instagram photo, knowing I have been wanting to do jewelry, so this photo was my inspiration:
I warped up my loom and got to work...
It was all going swimmingly until the end...
Things got a little...bunchy. It didn't look terrible exactly, but it didn't look great, either. So I tried again on a bigger piece. I made this one while watching the Olympics so obviously it had to have a few strands of gold in it.
Then came the tricky part of pulling on the warp threads juuuuust so. It took a while but it came out alright!
Now that I had successfully tried out the tutorial, I moved on to finally perfecting a bracelet and necklace!
And now for my proud finale. Necklace exactly how I envisioned!!!
I proudly wore the little necklace to church the day after I finished it and got lots of compliments on it! I know what every girlfriend is getting for birthday/Christmas this year!
