Weaving for Fabric

I starting weaving a new project today.

My Mom thought it would be nice to have handwoven fabric to make new cushions for her dining room chairs. I put 8 yards of warp on the loom. 

I am using some Harrisville Designs Shetland wool to weave. In the colours Cornflower (warp) and Suede (weft).

This is the underside. The pattern is "Derivation of the Twill - Warp Chevron" by Oscar Bériau, published in 1939. I found it in the Jan/Feb 2015 issue of Hand Woven magazine (the Oscar Tote by Beth Mullins). It is a really nice pattern to weave - thank goodness because there is lots to weave.

-40ºC with the windchill this morning.
It was much nicer when we went for our evening walk.

All the best!♥︎

That's beautiful. You have the best toys in your craft room.

I’m happy to report that we’re not competing with your wind chill here in Maine! And I admire that you have weaving skills. So far, I haven’t personally met a weaver either in my personal life or during my 53 year career as a nurse.

Love the weaving pattern & colours... but impressed that you actually "weave".
It must be very rewarding to achieve "fabric" at the end of this process.

Beautiful! Looks lovely and soft, but will it wear well for the purpose she wants it?
