Loom Flowers

Today’s mini craft is a blast from every primary school in Australia… well I assume so… we did it in my primary school anyway haha!

This Knitlon stuff was like a staple of market stalls in the 90’s, usually as crochet coat hangers._1260186 _1260591

But you know, it’s actually occasionally useful for other things 😀_1260592 _1260593 _1260594 _1260596 _1260597 _1260601

Easy hair flower in 5 minutes!

Fun With Weaving

I went through a pretty serious weaving obsession for a little while last year. I set up myself a makeshift loom using an old frame from a cheap canvas and wrapped the yarn around it.

James made me a rigid heddle using coffee stirrers and chopsticks and then I bought a shuttle from the Melbourne Spinners and Weaver’s guild.

It really looks super dodgey but it’s super functional.

These scarves were gifts for my parents. The frame was just long enough to make a decent size scarf._1310891

And it was easy to figure out how to do basic colour work by alternating colour strands!

What I would love to do next (though I say this knowing full well that I haven’t looked at the loom since I did all of these scarves…) is made a massive blanket sized shawl/scarf. Like double the size of the loom, it would be so warm and awesome!_1310902 _1310908 _1310909

These scarves were awesome as stash busters too, all of that super soft acrylic that I just didn’t know what to do with ended up as big cushy scarves 😀
