A very sentimental vest

I was searching for new weaving techniques and I remembered a book I saw when I was in The Art School in Granada, Spain which I believe is called Creative Weaving and it was part of a series of books published in Spain which had several issues of handmade disciplines … if there is any Spanish around who knows it, just write me!

Anyway, this book inspired me to know that you can weave on anything, using a support that is able to hold the threads and then is a question of “entangling” …

This vest was made using a paperboard, which is its own pattern and here I explain how to do it. As is my first tutorial, maybe I’m missing certain things, so tell me what you would love to see in the next ones.

I made the back with silk that is not so “heavy” and with the wonders of fabrics that are in Paris, is a pleasure going to search them … It took me over two weeks of work, but worth it!

Tonight I’m going to publish it for sale on Etsy and Dawanda
Bon soireé!

    Always I've liked geometry in all the senses: mathematical, philosophical and aesthetic. It has been my main source of inspiration together with the Golden Ratio. Even in the covers of my notebooks there is a rational analysis of composition on the basis of the covers' format with the proportion of size and position of the papers making the collage […]
