Hot on the heels of my full size weaving 'How To' here is step-by-step tutorial for weaving on a teeny tiny loom.
And after no luck finding a tiny loom to weave on I had to design my own (as you do!).
This tutorial uses the full loom which makes a weaving approx 10cm x 3.5cm.
I will be doing another tutorial soon to make an even teenier one suitable for a smaller dolls house.
YOU WILL NEED:
A tiny loom or make one out of stiff card with cuts in it (great etsy blog tute here).
Thin wool, yarn twine etc
Tapestry needle, smaller needle
Gather your supplies. We are going to warp the loom with your chosen colour. I am using pink embroidery floss (all 6 strands) Cut a length of 1 metre (40"). Tie a single knot around the left hand side of the loom as shown, then loop the thread around again and tuck the thread under so you end up with the thread secured but easy to undo at the end.
UPDATE: I have found a slightly quicker way to warp the Little Loom. Check out my quick video...
Next we are going to do a row of tassels.
Using the same thread (6 strands) cut 4 lengths at 17cm each for each tassel. Gather each group of 4 together then fold in half with finger between as shown.
In the last photo I have taken a length of bright pink thread and split it as I am only going to use 3 strands for the next bit.
So cute and so much fun to do. Great as a decorative wall hanging, dolls house feature or string it up and wear it as a necklace. So now I am off to keep playing with my little loom and to come up with some more fun ideas for you to try with yours.
As always if you have any questions please let me know.
