Weaving #1: Seriously Cool Loom Flowers!

P1190647

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!

Punched Tin Paper Angels

Very simple "punched tin" paper angel ornament to make with the kids!

Since I celebrate both Guadalupe Day (December 12th) and St. Lucy Day (December 13th), I became very excited when I came up with this little ornament idea  -  a perfect ornament that blends two cultures whose special celebrations fall so close together.
