Kaleidoscope Weave Wall Art

Ever since the first time that I did a Kaleidoscope Weave, I knew that it was a weave worthy of hanging on a wall. The first one that I did turned into an Oh How Sweet! Zipped Case that I gave to Melissa who made the case pattern. The next two that I did were intended for Wall Art, but I gave those to the fabric company. So this one I decided was all for me and that no one, not even Helena, could claim it as their own.

I pulled 22 beautiful shades of Art Gallery Fabrics Pure Elements and turned them into strips. I ended up using only 21 because of the pattern that I wanted and TBH it’s not like you can tell because the color flow definitely doesn’t look deficient.

Layer one by itself could’ve hung on a wall because the color flow in sequence like this is something that I could look at all day. But I knew that the weave would be even better, so I progressed through the second layer.

Woweewow. Seriously weaving fabric is the coolest thing ever. With the second layer done, I took a pause to gander at it’s glory and then dove right into the third layer.

Legit I was blown away because this turned out even more awesome that I ever could’ve imagined. This panel was 20″ x 20″, so all I had left was to frame it and enjoy. And there is a video coming in the next few weeks that’ll go over how I pick my colors and the layout for this Kaleidoscope Weave. But for now, I thought this was worthy of its own post.

  1. Fabulous – as your weaving always is! Can’t wait to hear how you select your colors and the layout as that seems to be the most challenging task for me. With just strips of fabric, I can’t envision how the end product would look and fear I would not be happy with the outcome.
