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!

Might try and run a workshop locally on this easy little project –
…will keep you posted…..<3
Lots of laser cut circle looms sorted today.
They look a bit like Poker chips – game anyone?
…..perhaps we’d better not 🙂
I’ll start choosing colourful yarn combinations from the shelves and then get to making up weaving kits instead 🙂
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.
Twill textile Design now has a little online shop on Etsy.
So, from today, it’s possible to purchase the Circle Weaving Kits.
There are two sizes available and the kits come with everything you need to get started (apart from scissors)
You can also find instructional videos here.
Hope you’re having a lovely week.
