Saori weaving and making ‘cloth’

At my studio we have been talking a lot lately about weaving cloth – that can be turned into anything!

This came up at one of my retreats and it shifted the idea from weaving something – a placemat, a bag, a top, etc., into the weaving of cloth.

The focus has then been more on the weaving and less on a finished product (that will happen too – just as the pillows did) but it gives another level of freedom of weaving.

From this….

Saori Woven Cloth

to this….

Saori Top

is just one example….

Happy Weaving,

    Thanks Taueret! I had fun putting this top together. I decided I like the white ‘icicles’ and wanted to feature that part of the fabric. I also thought – after draping it this way and that – that I liked it best on an angle. So the whole top was created around that.

    There is just one seam in a continuous strip of fabric that joins it across the back of one of the shoulders. Then I sewed a bit up each side to keep it together there and tacked it into a v-neck at the front. The back has a small triangle of coordinating (SAORI-style) fabric inset in the ‘V’ to keep it from falling off the shoulders.

    Happy Weaving,
    Terri
