This is my first tapestry. I kind of did the "go big or go home" learning style with this, although it is using a lot of techniques, so it works. The weft is cheap acrylic yarn (I didn't want to use my fancy handspun for a first tapestry) and the warp is general cotton warp yarn. I plan on finishing it using a couple of dowels to make it a wall hanging. I'm using a Mirrix tapestry loom.
