When I was initially asked to contribute a tutorial to the launch of The Weaving Kind’s new website, I had so many ideas running through my mind I almost didn’t know where to begin. After much thought, I decided to contribute a tutorial that I thought would not only be helpful to others, but that also reflected what weaving and lifestyle meant to me. My home and work space is almost entirely surrounded by textile art, musical instruments and plant life. So I thought I’d share with you one of my favourite woven creations that allows you to explore your creativity but to also create something practical and beautiful for your home.
If you are a plant life lover like I am, you will know that indoor plants (especially) require a special kind of attention that includes a very specific balance of lighting, watering and positioning. While I love the wonderful aesthetics that a plant cosy can offer a plant, it must also be able to provide all these vital requirements. Most indoor plants don’t require much water, however, during warmer months, a good watering session that allows adequate drainage is one of the key components for a plant to not just survive but for it to thrive! The plant cosy I have chosen to make includes a dish on the bottom as well as a means for you to take your plant out for a good watering session over the sink.
Enjoy this tutorial.
