I have decided to try one of the cocoon templates, that I have already posted about, in my tapestry weaving.
It is one that is on an A4 piece of paper which fits nicely across the loom. As I am making it up as I go along, I think I might make it a bit larger, maybe a squarer shape, as I can't make the width of the loom any bigger but I can make the design taller. The free motion sample is fairly small once it is joined together, so I am hoping that by making the fringe parts longer it will be slightly bigger. The thicker fabric may have an effect also. Hence the thought that I could be wasting my time, it might not work at all.
It consists of 13 separate sections that will join when I get to the correct height. So I will get lots of practice making slits (which I don't have to sew up - yay!!) as well as keeping my sides straight, 13 times. Each section is only 8 warps wide so I can say to myself, "I'll just finish this section". This seems to make it go more quickly, at least, it did when I used to do Fair Isle knitting, I haven't done enough weaving on this piece to know yet.
If this doesn't work, I won't know till I have woven it all and am trying to sew it together. Tapestry is much slower than the free motion sewing but I have decided that I really want to try it, so here goes.
