How to make a paper weaving artwork the red thread :: create, inspire, share craft tutorials, DIY, design, interiors TUTORIAL :: How to make a paper weaving artwork History The Monoyama period (1573 - 1614) is the beginning of the kumihimo of today. It evidenced change in kimono style with the introduction of a very wide ”obi” (sash) that required a narrow cord to hold it in place. The braided ”obijime” was created for this purpose. The style is still worn in Japan today when wearing a kimono is appropriate. Toward the end of the Edo period (1616 - 1867), the takadai, or high braiding stand, developed into its current form, one allowing for more complex, intricate patterns to be created. Edo (later named Tokyo) became the center for kumihimo.

Fiber Wow. That’s about all I can say after reading how Kerri Pajutee creates her miniature animal sculptures.

{macramé: half knot spiral} washer & wingnut bracelet By Kate on October 25, 2011 Hello there! I finally got around to posting after a hectic few weeks. I’ve been working on a big project which is all done and dusted now so I will be making more frequent updates between now and Christmas…phew! Tutorial showing how to make rope coil vessels and bowls These rope coil vessels are quite meditative to make. I found the repetition of the stitches gave me a sense of stillness as I sat in the autumn sun making them. There are various methods of making rope coil bowls and baskets, and the traditional way of stitching is more uniform than I have made mine. In my tutorial the placement of the stitches is random and I love the texture and visual interest that results from this method.

Nautical Knot Bracelets Bring a little seafaring flair to your style with these bright, bold bracelets.
