When I started to "weave a little sunshine" for Jude
I began with the sun-rays
and I knew that the round weaving
would NOT be easy
(and I didn't want to many ruffles)
First I thought of cutting the strips on the bias,
that way you can easily force them around
but eventually I tore very narrow strips,
wetted them lightly
and then stretched them in the curve I needed :
it worked perfectly !
But ... when you are carried away with your good ideas
you tend to forget certain things :
did you already bast the underground ???
(of course I must say : I got carried away and then I forgot certain things)
So before I could start to baste down all the warp and weft strips ...
I had to put them very careful aside
and do my "forgotten" underground bast !
(if you don't use your head .... )
And now : I'm done !
not a single pin there anymore
Ta - daaaa !
All these tiny strips and scraps have finally become
(you know what : this is what you can do with it now !)
and after that it looks the same as the picture above
