Have you ever tried weaving on your cards? Today EH Ambassador, Jessica Frost-Ballas, is going to show you how to use the new Essentials Stitching Rectangles – coming this Friday at 9AM PST – to create a woven rainbow!
Good morning! Jess here with a fun way to use your dies in a new way! I’m using the Essentials Stitching Rectangles to create a tapestry loom of sorts for weaving! I’ve used them in conjunction with the Essentials Rectangles to create cardstock frames.
I warped my “loom” with cotton thread and then used a combination of wool roving and chunky cotton yarn to weave a rainbow panel. I used a simple tabby weave (under and over) for this beginning tutorial but will share more weaving patterns soon! You can use a variety of materials: yarn, embroidery thread, fabric scraps, ribbons, or even paper to create similar effects!
Finally I finished the card with another cardstock frame and a simple sentiment die-cut from the Big Scripty Hello! I have a video with a closer look at the “loom” creation and weaving process that you can watch below or over on the Ellen Hutson YouTube channel.
I hope this gives you some new ideas for your stitching and shapes dies and I can’t wait to see what you’ll do with these new dies!
Thanks for stopping by and have an amazing day!
