And some people (like me) don't.
I love wooden tapestry bobbins and I love making each one a unique piece- and I especially like using upcycled wood to make them.
So, for those of you who like yarn butterflies, here's a video tutorial on how to make yarn butterflies:
And, here's how I make my one of a kind tapestry bobbins, which wouldn't suit everyone, but I love them and find them to be a pleasure to use:
Start with a piece of cast off wood. In this case, a wooden plaque (don't use chipboard or mdf ! This needs to be hardwood)
Go slowly... and pay attention....
Then, it's off to work with a bunch of different small sanding drums:
And, here they are, all wrapped up and ready to weave!
So, happy butterflies, and happy bobbin-ing!
Happy weaving! :)
