Materials and techniques
Weaved free-handedly with the maker's own wefting technique on a simple small homemade wooden frame loom. Petticoat cloth cut into weavable strips, knotted to secure on warp wire when needed. To shape, the number of warp wires were increased and reduced while manipulating warp tensions. Once cut off loom, warp wire ends were twisted to secure work top and bottom. Hands, scissors, wire cutters and pliers, needle and pins are used in making.
