I wove 20 yards of cotton fabric to be used to recover my couch cusions. I used 10/2 and 5/2 cotton in a pattern from "A Weaver's Book of 8-shaft Patterns" (#694) and ironed Pellon interfacing to all of the fabric to give it stability and body. The project spanned 5 years of on and off weaving including several time-outs for surgery. Luckily, I have two looms. The couch was built by my husband from logs on our property. BTW, I am now weaving only small projects!
