Tablet-woven belt

I started my first try at tablet weaving quite some time ago, must have been over a year, could well have been two. *blush*.

But this weekend I finally managed to finish the belt, and here’s the photo: tablet woven belt

It’s about 2 meters long (just the woven part) and winds about two times around my waist or three times around the waist of my daughter. I don’t know what I will do with it, maybe try to use it as a belt. I’m just happy it’s finally finished and not sitting in a corner staring at me anymore. If you click on the photo you can get a bigger version and spot the mistakes I did. 🙂
The upper part (in the picture) was the beginning, you can see that I tried out the different patterns I can get. In the lower part you can see the pattern (that I chose after some experiments) quite well and also the mistakes I did.

The yarn is mostly cotton yarn, except for the yellow, I don’t know which fibre was used for that.

The photo was taken on our black couch, the velvety (or rather suede-like) surface looks kind of dirty in the photo but that’s because of the flash.

  1. if you fiddle with that particular card set up you can do all sorts of clever double woven things – it helps if you draw what you want on grpah paper to make your own chart
