Hi , I was keen to try tablet/card weaving so had to make a loom.
I first tried to make one out of a clipboard but found it was way too small.
so then a chair seemed like a possibilty
I managed to make a nice metre and a half of braid, but lets face it, not a very portable option....
then I tried using a stool, converted and now christened, the "ankle loom"
and found it was easier to use the coffee table to measure the threads
I used up all the blue white and green thread in the house and made a three metre length of braid
Eager to test my meager wood working skills, I made a small loom, based on a loom I saw a lady make with a spice rack and two toilet paper holder, aka the "bog loom" short for bog roll loom.
It actually works quite well, though I still need a ton of practice
heres some 9o cm braids
and last night I made about two metres of dark red and white,
not photographed yet
if you made it this far, well done!
my 6th braid, 1.84 metres, made this weekend
