weaving hints continued

6. Place a finger on the middle and start raising the warp strip working toward the right --over, under, etc. Push the straight edge up to the boundary and touch it with the iron to hold it in position. Then continue to work from the center to the left edge--over, under, etc. Cover this row with your paper and iron selectively to tack everything down.

7. Cut the next wavey weft. Lay it on the warp and match up the fabric pattern with the previous row. It should match exactly. Again place a finger on the middle and weave this row right up against the previous row working to the right and then to the left. Again cover your work with paper and tack down.

8. Repeat with the rest of the weft, leaving no gaps between rows. When finished sandwich the whole piece between the papers and iron on both sides to really seal it. Allow to cool. Select the best area of the piece and cut your 8 1/2 x 11 inch rectangle. Enjoy.
