Woven wall hangings always feel comfy and homey to me. Now you can learn to make them yourself with the help of this comprehensive book. Learn terms, weaving stitches, techniques and more, then get weaving. Follow the patterns in this book, or create your own using the skills you will learn.
There is a giveaway for a copy of this book at the end of this post. The giveaway ends March 24, 2020.

First, Amella McDonell-Parry writes about both necessary and useful supplies. This way you can start with just the necessities, and once you decide you are in love with this art, you can get all the fun extras!
Various techniques such as making shapes and textures are explained. All with clearly written instructions and plenty of photos. Several patterns are also included so you can try out these skills. I chose a shaggy triangle design that looked like fun to try.
I think it was a combination of a small amount of experience I’ve had over the years, and the awesome instructions in Learn to Make Woven Wall Hangings that guided me to finally getting my weaving tension correct. Look at that photo above, the tension is so pretty!
I enjoyed creating this little fuzzy piece with Red Heart Hygge yarn. It turns out an antique knitting needle makes a great hanger for woven wall hangings. I learned some nifty new skills making this. Plus it only took a couple hours! It’s so fun and fast that I may have to make a few for gifts.
If you want to learn to make woven wall hangings, this is the book for you. I love the idea of creating touchable, textured art that coordinates with the rest of your room.
