Weaving Adventures

Happy Daisy Amy Edwards Green Weaving Loom
I did a little bit a weaving on a handmade loom a while back. I was just testing out something I'd wanted to try for a while and it was really enjoyable. So now school's out for summer and I'm taking an enforced rest from knitting and crochet - my preferred hobbies, I went back to weaving, making a new loom from an old picture frame I'd previously used for batik.

My aim with this project was to test out different techniques, working on diamonds and triangles - I really struggled with triangles, knotting to make tassels and fringing, and basket weave and step designs.

It's far from technically perfect, but it's a step in the right direction at least.

I really want to make a woven rag rug - so that's probably next on the agenda, as soon as I can make a loom the right size!

  1. Awesome! I really want to learn how to weave it looks so cute! I think I did it once when I was like in yr 3 and we went to this castle because they were teaching us about history lol. I like the colours you have used and all the different patterns especially the yellow triangles. Do you know where I could get a kit for this?
