Large, Double-Sided, Branch Weave
My November craft project was making this double-sided, large, branch weave. It looks like a beautiful boho yarn geode. The colors are turquoise on one side and lapis lazuli on the other. I have never shipped something this large and uniquely sized; it should be interesting. If you have suggestions on how to best ship something like this, please message me below.
Using natural materials from walks, hikes, and fabric textiles to create beautiful home decor is fun and rewarding.
Each of my branch weaves is a one-of-a-kind creation, made from unique branch wood from downed native trees, cotton warping thread, and beautiful yarns. This can be purchased on Etsy.
