Handwoven Home by Liz Gipson
A handwoven home is the best kind of home. From towels and throws to napkins and placemats, weaving is perfectly suited for creating and customizing almost any textile for your home.
In Handwoven Home, weaving expert Liz Gipson guides you through the tools and techniques you’ll need to weave all of your personalized textiles on the most popular loom on the market—the rigid-heddle loom. You’ll cover all the basics of rigid-heddle weaving like choosing the right yarn for your project, and achieving your desired cloth type and the perfect drape.
Each of the 20+ projects inside starts with a simple square or rectangle and involves little to no sewing, shaping, or loom waste, making each one perfect for the rigid-heddle loom. You’ll learn how to weave multiple towels from one warp with the Four Looks Kitchen Towels, how to create a sturdy rug of wide fabric with the Fabric Stash Rag Rug, and how to finish each project with a polished, professional look.
Whether you’re making textiles for yourself or as a gift, you’ll find everything you need to create a woven personal touch for any room.
