This time I tried a spherical doodle weaving working with an embroidery hoop! I didn’t comply with anybody’s recommendations, I just built it up as I went alongside. I am certain there are improved techniques to do this, but I just employed tape, yarn, and a glue gun.

making the warp from yarn for a round weaving

How to make a round doodle weaving:

1. Established up the warp (these are the vertical threads). I did this by slicing a complete bunch of threads and then taping them to the aspect of the hoop. I did not measure, just eye-balled. I also loosely taped the hanging threads up to the facet which is why it appears to be like there is so substantially tape.

2. Start out weaving. Just about anything goes, below. Refer again to my to start with doodle weaving submit for much more specific guidelines. Just start and conclusion underneath. And use a fork to thrust down the weft (those people are the horizontal threads).

3. I use a “shoelace” strategy when weaving whereby I wrap the end of the yarn with a piece of tape so that it is easier to weave with. This is simply because I are not able to find my plastic weaving needles. But it is also because I just can’t see effectively enough to thread the needle. This strategy operates actually nicely for me. It is fast and straightforward.

4. You never have to go from base to top when doodle weaving. You can start off wherever and move all-around right up until it is all crammed up. I ultimately want to weave like I would attract, but for now I instinctively go bottom to major. You can also go back again in and fill areas if there are gaps. The fork actually allows to make it all tight.

5. When finished, I pulled off the blue tape that I utilised to loosely hold the ends, but I remaining the tape that retains the warp. I created certain you could not see it when positioning the outer hoop around the inner hoop. Tighten the outer hoop as tight as you can.
