In a recent post, I claimed that the stamp woven in the corner of this ‘letter’ was my first handwoven faux postage. Who knew? Turns out I was wrong…! I just re-discovered an old post of mine from 2010 in which I wove a postage stamp on a tiny matchbox loom!
I had completely forgotten about this, but really need to try it again – it would totally be possible to embroider a little detail onto the surface of this tiny weaving…
Ironically, this miniature weaving probably took as long to complete as the handwoven postcards I have talked about recently, due to the fine embroidery threads used instead of bulkier knitting wools. It would be possible to weave a quicker stamp using a bulkier yarn or thread, though – it would just afford less opportunity for adding finer detail.
See the original post for further details.
