A couple weekends ago my friend Sonja came over for a craft day! we decided to try out some simple weaving. I used a styrofoam tray that I had saved to set up the mini loom. I cut small notches in the top and bottom to stretch our vertical yarn (warp) through. we rigged up a paintbrush to use as a shuttle. I had a comb (as a loom beater) that worked perfectly to secure the horizontal yarn (weft) into place.
I was inspired to try some simple diy weaving by this cardboard loom. I prefer the styrofoam because it holds it shape better and after I took the piece off I was able to flip over my tray to use for blocking the piece with pins.
I will def be trying my hand at some different patterns in the future. I’ve think I’ve got enough pinspiration to go from :)
