Finished piece is 3.5″ x 3.5″

This was an ambitious piece for a loom beginner and I learned a lot about how to make the next piece better.  The beads are 46″ across by 46″ tall so it comes to 2116 tiny Delica beads.  The spacing isn’t as tight as I’d like, but I can adjust the way I worked on the loom for the next time. Being a fan of showing the artist’s hand in artwork I like it despite the imperfections, and will most likely use it in the Little Red Riding Hood piece I have in mind. It will be a small portion of a bigger piece.

I’ve been planning to have the wolf to the left of Little Red, looking at her but I don’t have a clear answer in my mind as to how they will go together yet. This piece may need to sit a little while until it’s completely solved.  Thanks for coming along for the ride.
