New Inkle Weaving

I started on a new inkle loom weaving for some new pocket purses. I used the material that will be the inside of the bag to govern the color I would use for the exterior. I'm really enjoying the weaving and love the exercise of pulling the colors from the fabric itself.

I keep toying with taking an inkle weaving class at fiber festival this year. I am a beginning weaver currently working on my Cricket loom and eager to absorb all sorts of weaving techniques.

Your colors are beautiful.

Wow! That's really pretty and the colors look like a perfect match to your fabric. I've been wanting to build or buy an inkle loom lately. I've even been watching videos online of how to warp them but it seems very confusing. I was able to try weaving on one a few years ago at a fiber festival and it was really simple. I'm wondering if it would make sense once I got one and some books with diagrams. Is it fairly simple to figure out?

Very pretty and a PERFECT match! I want more info, too-are you doing plain weave? How does it turn out so pretty.....can you give a little tutorial?!

You did a great job of matching colors! What string/yarn are you using to get all of those subtle colors? ~Annie

I agree with ASpinnerWeaver "great match on the colors". What yarn are you using?

Hilary said...

Yes, what are you using. Is it 8/4 cotton?
I love it......I have two inkle looms, but haven't really done much with them.

What a great inkle band! I love how you matched the colors with the fabric that you chose. I'm looking forward to seeing your finished bag! Inkle loom weaving is addictive....
