weaving 

here's some cloth i just finished weaving using a ball of "thrums" i've been keeping for the past year or so. "thrums" are the bits of yarn at the start and end of the warp that you can't usually weave because they're tied on or too far from the heddles—one way to reuse them is to tie them together and use them for weft in another project, like this. the warp for this cloth is the last bits of a bunch of cones i had sitting around, woven with a "progressive" twill (1/3, 2/2, 3/1, 2/2...)

(the cloth is actually three panels that i joined with a ladder stitch. planning to use this to make a pillow case for a throw pillow)

whoops forgot to post the finished pillow case! this is all hand-woven (from leftover thrums and remnants of mostly-used cones) and hand-sewn (because i don't have a sewing machine lol). i really like how it turned out! i love the texture of the twill and the little nubs of the knots where i tied the thrums together

@aparrish I love the texture and the random plaid, and it looks so cohesive for something made from scraps! What kind of loom did you use?
