Earlier this summer, I took a workshop on weaving round rugs. The technique the instructor used was basically the technique used for making Wagon Wheel rugs. I liked the technique, but I didn't like the actual frame we used. I think it was a little too flexible, and I would have liked trying it better on a more rigid frame. I need my own Wagon Wheel, I guess!
Anyway, it was pretty neat to make a weaving frame out of PVC pipe and to actually weave this. I don't think I would try it again though unless I could find a more rigid frame. I couldn't really work with a tension as tight as I would have liked. Anyone have any ideas for rigid round frames?
Notice also that I decided to sew a zigzag "overstitch" to secure the weaving in place. I felt like the weaving I had done would eventually bunch up unless I did something to secure it into position.
