Valentine’s Day Drafts and WIFs for Weavers
Some people might not agree, but the weaver in me believes that nothing says Valentine’s Day like woven hearts. I did a little searching and then worked with weaving software to develop these 4 heart weaving drafts and matching WIFs. I’m sure there are many more ways to weave hearts, but perhaps these will get you started. Click on the cards to find the drafts underneath. Below you will find corresponding downloadable Valentine’s Day WIFs for weavers.
Did you know that people of the middle ages first began using hearts as a symbol of love? Today they are universally recognized as symbols of affection. We often use the simple heart shape in writing and drawing to show kindness and appreciation for people and things. As weavers, we can weave that same simple heart shape to evoke the same emotions. I can picture these hearts on handwoven towels, scarves, baby wraps, and blankets. Imagine wrapping a baby in a blanket covered with hearts or giving a set of linen towels with heart borders to newlyweds just starting their lives together. Consider how weaving a scarf for a friend is an act of love and that just by adding a heart or two, you might cheer them on a gloomy day. It’s a simple shape, just a symbol really, that says a lot.
Happy Valentines’ day!
