3 square loom weaving projects

Here’s a very small woven wall decoration I made for a wee corner of the studio. I improvised with my square loom plus some scraps of thick wool and cotton. It was really fun and quick to weave.

I also wove some small squares to use as make up remover wipes. They are made of machine washable organic cotton which is sooo soft and gentle.

Lastly, some tree decorations. Squares folded in half diagonally and stitched into triangle shapes. Glue a cinnamon stick inside and stitch a sparkly star on the top.

Both these little looms are available from my Etsy shop here.

Ps. There is free shipping within New Zealand from now until the end of the year!

Welcoming a New Loom

Over the last few weeks, I’ve been ‘breaking in’ my new loom. 

So far, it’s been quite a slow progress with plenty of ‘scratching of head’ moments. 

My father- in-law kindly helped me put it together on a hot sunny day.

 I worked on linking it to my laptop, then set up some warp threads and finally got to weave a little cloth. 

There have been plenty of teething problems along the way but it is a very lovely loom and I feel like we will become very good friends. 

P.S. For anyone interested in looms; this is a narrow width 24 shaft compu-dobby made by AVL.  The computer bit assists me with longer, complex weave sequences, but everything else about it still involves hand weaving.
