Quiet Friday: Woven Baby Wrap

What do you weave into the fabric that will be cradling your future granddaughter? Love, and lots of it, of course. The baby wrap has been woven, and is cut from the loom! All that is left is the finishing work–examining for errors, washing and drying, and hemming. …And Melody learning how to wrap a baby wrap. Soon enough, baby Lucia will be wrapped in this love-made piece of cloth.

      Beachweaver, It makes me very happy to have friends like you joining me in this journey!

      Thank you for the compliments. I think working with color may be my main incentive for weaving. It’s invigorating to put colors together and watch them co-mingle into something visually interesting.
