Good day to all!
What can I say? I love the process of weaving. Today has been a day of making Bumble Bee Coasters, using an upcycling method I saw on Pinterest. (Yes, I’m a Pinterest Junkie.)
For those of you who have old CDs and DVDs laying around, don’t throw them away. Instead, use them as a base for weaving in the round. I’m kind of silly, because I didn’t photograph each step but if you check out CD Weaving on Pinterest, you’re sure to find a good tutorial. To make it even easier, follow me and check out my Weaving board.
The photo below shows the last one in progress. I call it the Bumble Bee because it is black and yellow, and we should be raising awareness to save our bees. Without bees we won’t have pollination, and without pollination we don’t have bountiful crops. And, don’t forget the honey bees too!
The weaving is worked on the shiny side of the CD, and the label side is the back of the project. To make the back neater and to secure the thread ends, cut a piece of craft felt slightly smaller than the disc and glue it on. That way, surfaces are protected with an extra layer.
I’m going to be listing this set of four in my Etsy Shop as soon as it’s finished. With our upcoming move, the less I have to pack the better. Also stay tuned for a coupon code for my Etsy Shop. It will be posted in the comments, on my Instagram and my Facebook Page.
The feature photo is of the almost completed set. The set will be listed in my Etsy Shop by the end of July 25/17.
