I weaved it

 I hadn't anticipated the amount of time it would take to weave 10m of cotton rope but 30 odd hrs later and some patience and she's done!

  
I was going to leave this one plain as it's my first attempt at trying to create a weave with my own aesthetic.... but I couldn't help myself and a tassel sneaked in!



 I love the form I created, my wheel throwing experience has paid off and I'm itching to give weaving a go again!
  


Do try it...just a blanket stitch and time! :)

Here's a great tut, if you can't make it to one of Maryann's workshops.

Pippa

psst do you see 'Wonder Woman' in the tassel?
or is it just me?

  1. You're so creative! I was eager to see your coiled rope piece, but I never imagined put together with metallic thread or with the fringe treatment. What nice touches!

    1. Thanks Dana, I couldn't wait to bling it and copper is hot right now and I have a love of metallics! I think a rope pot could fit nicely in the dividing wall! x
