I can’t believe it’s been such a long time since I last updated. My weaving has remained pretty constant over this period, I have been busy developing new ideas and weaving off existing ones. As I discussed in an earlier post my intention was to weave off much larger pieces of fabric from one of my favourite collections.
I have made excellent progress with this and I am now at a point that I can begin work experimenting and prototyping products. what a wonderful feeling it is to see all my months of hard work planning and designing finally be at a usable stage.
I began by making a small collection of cushion covers, I think the scale of my designs and choice of yarn lend themselves better to home furnishing products, although I have not completely ruled out developing a range for fashion in the future.
One thing I think is missing from the designs is a way of identifying that they are mine, perhaps branding them in some way is crucial. I need to do a bit of research into printed tags I can sew onto the products.
