Tape woven garters

I finally finished my tape woven garters today. I still learning how to weave, so it has it's flaws, but never the less I am really proud!



As, almost, always the wool is dyed with natural dyes, the brick red is done with madder, the orange with union skins and the yellow with weld.

Wow. I am impressed - I have always wanted to learn. Where did the buckles come from? They look great.

Hi GrĂ¡inne ,

Thanks for the compliment!
Tape weaving is actually a lot simpler than tabletweaving/card weaving. It is very similar to normal weaving.
The buckles I bought at the yearly vikingmarket in het Archeon, http://www.archeon.nl/, last year.
