Weaving # 5: Weaving on Objects - Recycled Cardboard Containers Make Great Looms!


I have been weaving on a little different kind of "cardboard loom"! Weaving on cardboard objects! In this case cardboard containers! The weaving becomes part of the container, embellishing and strengthening at the same time.


Weaving #3: Giant Teneriffe Snowflake (or Mid-Sommer Sun)

Giant Teneriffe snowflake

Right in the middle of writing the tutorial for making Teneriffe Snowflakes (post is here) I started wondering if I could make a simple Teneriffe Snowflake on a knitting loom. So I dropped everything - pulled out the loom and a bit of bulky weight yarn and this is the beautiful result!

Weaving #2: How to Make Teneriffe Snowflakes


Teneriffe Lace making is what Diane would refer to as "deep craft" a more "intense" craft that relatively few crafters will likely attempt. However, after struggling through the learning curve and actually finding teneriffe to be fun, I set out to create a very simple version of the sweet little circlets and thereby hopefully making it more appealing to a greater number of crafters. I call these "Teneriffe Snowflakes".

Weaving #1: Seriously Cool Loom Flowers!


The next two weeks will be devoted to weaving! Lots of different kinds of weaving! And we are starting it off with Teneriffe and its "spin-off cousins" - flower looms.

Thinking some of you might be surprised at the sweet possibilities the flower looms offer - so I am sharing a few of them along with a link to one of the best free PDF's available for making loom flowers.

And in a couple more days - a tutorial from me to you for making a simplified Teneriffe lacy snowflake just like the one above! It is not as hard as it looks!
