I did another small project. I went from the cardboard loom, to a loom made out from a picture frame.(instructions via youtube) It worked perfectly for this piece. I used some colourful Beehive tapestry wool which I had.
a bit of embroidery as well.
Thanking you for stopping by,
till next time,
Inspiration to start this project came while browsing through Pinterest; it has so many great ideas to try.
So, before I went ahead and spend money on a loom and may not want to continue; I made a cardboard loom for beginners
I made mine according to the instructions from www.theweavingloom.com , which has valuable tips for a beginner. I also looked at some videos from youtube too.
This is the very first piece I tried.
I wanted to continue on, tried to add blocks of colours.
On the last piece, I tried to do a flower (which turned out like a maple leaf) and also how to add 'rya knots'.
So far, I like weaving ....to the next level perhaps...
