Weaving

 photo 7 14 weaving-8_zpsu2czpvn1.jpgI have been seeing so much weaving around, and since I hadn’t tried anything since Christmas – it was time to start again.

If you remember from this post, I didn’t have a real loom when I tried my last project. I also didn’t feel like spending over $50 for a loom.

I found this version at Walmart for under $30, and it worked pretty well! Assembly is a little tricky, but everything works once you get started. This loom is also great for many different types of projects, so I’m happy with the purchase 🙂

I didn’t really have a plan for the weaving, just the yarn and ribbon that I wanted to use. I definitely want to mix more ribbon into my next project.

All done! Hope you like it! Can’t wait to make more! These can be pretty quick to make… especially when watching a few episodes of Grey’s Anatomy on Netflix…
