The Chunky Basketweave Pillow has been one of the favorite projects from my book Weaving Within Reach. I love woven throw pillows because they can change the look of a room. They’re a fun way to keep things looking fresh and new! It’s so easy to learn this lovely weaving technique and you don’t need a loom or any fancy equipment to make it.
You can make this beautiful basketweave pillow in no time with my new step-by-step Chunky Basketweave Pillow video course! I love video courses because I feel like I have the opportunity to connect with you wherever you are. This is so important with everything that is going on these days.
The video includes instructions on:
:: Cutting your materials
:: Weaving the basketweave pattern
:: Adding a backing for your pillow
:: Fine-tuning the finish on your pillow
:: Finishing your pillow with a blind stitch
If you’re interested, I have Chunky Basketweave Pillow kits in my shop. The video comes free with the kit! Or, if you’d like, you can just buy the gorgeous Wanderlust Yarn I use here.
As makers, we reach for our crafts in stressful times. Just feeling the materials run through my fingers brings me a sense of calm that I can’t get from anywhere else. I’ve been making it a priority every day to take the time to sit, breathe and focus on making something beautiful. I hope you’re taking the time for yourself and doing the things that bring you happiness.
What loom do you need?
NO loom at all! That’s the best part!
