weave party


It would be so much fun to organize a weaving party! :D

A comment from a blog visitor, Kate, has motivated me to just pick up some yarn and start weaving. Thanks, Kate! :D

I found a paper plate and cut notches all around it, about 1″ apart, and then taped lengths of cotton string across, like so…

Here’s the back of this make-shift loom…

Then I just tied a length of yarn to one of the strings in the middle and started weaving between the strings, over and under, over and under, over and under… Until I ran out of the colour of yarn I was using, then I tied a different colour of yarn to the yarn tail, and continued weaving…

When I’ve gotten a big enough circle (I decided that I wanted to make a coaster half way through), I cut the strings near where they’re taped to the plate, one at a time, and tied each loose end to the last round of weaved yarn.

I hid all the loose ends and yarn tails under a piece of felt, which I cut to the size of the finished weaving and sewed onto the weaving around the edge.

And this is the front!

A fun party coaster :D


Did it all while watching TV. Very relaxing. I think it would so much fun to organize a weaving party, where everyone can weave and chat.

Have a great evening, everyone!
