What to do with Small Bits

After I was having so much fun with triaxial weaving, I had to decide what would be a good use of these pieces I was creating. They don’t lend themselves to the normal towels, scarves, shawls, etc. of normal weaving. Then in perusing some of my small bits of woven cloth – you see when I spend that much time on a piece, I just can’t through away those little bits left over after making a project – I decided to try my hand at making some cards.

Now to find cards with windows in them has not been easy – at least on this side of the pond. I found quite a few on the other side for too much. So I decided to try and make my own. Here are the first results.

 

Bomber Flight

These first two are leftovers from other projects. I love how the bomber (in posts here and here) was the perfect size for the card opening I made. Also the color and weave pattern fit with three sections perfectly in the window.

These two also looked great. My first successful Log Cabin pattern, which I love how 3D it looks, and then a woven
piece that is a false plaid in that the warp and weft are space dyed yarn and the plaid look is a result of the color repeat in the yarn.

White and Gold Triaxial

I love my triaxial weavings and these two fit so nicely in the windows. I also like the contrast with the card though the lilac color is prettier in reality than I could get a picture. The gold box in a sea of quartz is quite a piece of eye candy. That piece took a bit to make.

Here are two more triaxial woven pieces that I had woven and now are resting in windows in cards. The pastel pattern looks great in the lilac card. Then this is my very first triaxial piece that I wrote about here. I dearly love the look of it and how you can play with it with your eyes and it can change its look.

 

I loved making these cards and plan on continuing with them.
