My thoughts is continually attempting to slot in time to weave. I’m such a novice, and don’t actually have a mode, however I like taking part in round with shade and form. This time I attempted a spherical doodle weaving utilizing an embroidery hoop! I didn’t comply with anyone’s directions, I simply made it up as I went alongside. I’m positive there are higher methods to do that, however I simply used tape, yarn, and a glue gun.
For extra in-depth directions, see my first doodle weaving here. I used the identical approach.

Provides wanted for spherical doodle weaving:
~ Yarn in numerous colours and weights (you possibly can go to a craft retailer or purchase on-line – low-cost yarn is simply advantageous)
~ Picket embroidery hoop (I used an 8-inch hoop)
~ Masking tape
~ Pom-pom maker (optionally available)
How one can make a spherical doodle weaving:
1. Arrange the warp (these are the vertical threads). I did this by chopping a complete bunch of threads after which taping them to the facet of the ring. I didn’t measure, simply eye-balled. I additionally loosely taped the hanging threads as much as the facet which is why it seems like there may be a lot tape.
2. Begin weaving. Something goes, right here. Refer again to my first doodle weaving publish for extra express directions. Simply begin and finish beneath. And use a fork to push down the weft (these are the horizontal threads).
3. I take advantage of a “shoelace” approach when weaving whereby I wrap the top of the yarn with a bit of tape in order that it’s simpler to weave with. It is because I can’t discover my plastic weaving needles. But it surely’s additionally as a result of I can’t see nicely sufficient to string the needle. This method works rather well for me. It’s fast and simple.
4. You don’t must go from backside to prime when doodle weaving. You can begin anyplace and transfer round till it’s all stuffed up. I finally need to weave like I might draw, however for now I instinctively go backside to prime. You too can return in and fill areas if there are gaps. The fork actually helps to make all of it tight.
5. When completed, I pulled off the blue tape that I used to loosely maintain the ends, however I left the tape that holds the warp. I made positive you couldn’t see it when inserting the outer hoop over the internal hoop. Tighten the outer hoop as tight as you possibly can.
6. Hint the ring onto a bit of felt with a pencil.
7. Sizzling glue the felt to the again. It is a very easy technique to end the weaving so that you don’t must take care of all of the ends!
8. Make a pom-pom to cowl the little knob on prime of the ring. Add a bit of wire to hold!
Voila! Don’t overlook to observe the video!
