First Tapestry

First Tapestry  - student project

Here's the sketch of my first tapestry and the final product. As you can see, Initially I was going to create a very simple design, but once I got started weaving I got ambitious! 

Biggest areas for improvement:

  • The soumak stitch in the beginning
  • Keeping the tightness of my weave consistent -- as you can see, the tapestry has a wider base but is otherwise consistent. 

This was really fun to work on and I'm pumped about my next project! I didn't invest heavily in my yarn this time around, but am willing to spend more now that I know what I can do! Thank you for this great lesson series, Annerys!
