Very pretty! I really like the last picture-- very cool composition. Cheesy

I think the first flowers are magnolias.
3  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Building a PVC spinning wheel on: February 24, 2009 11:27:49 AM
So, after a really nasty experience of getting scammed while trying to buy a wheel, I've decided to look into building my own. I think the concept behind the Babe wheels is great, but as a starving student, I really can't afford the $200 price tag.

I've done some research and I think I have a good idea of what to do to make my own PVC wheel, but one part I'm having trouble figuring out is the flyer and the bobbin (i.e. how do they interact/attach to each other). More specifically, I'm not really sure how I would do the tension for the bobbin. Also, what cheap material could I use as a bobbin/use to make a bobbin?

Just to give you an idea of my resources here, I'm trying to keep the price under $100, and I don't really have access to any heavy duty power tools (nothing for woodworking).

Any advice or info here would help. Thanks everyone!  Smiley

Wow! This is really impressive. The pot holders and the eye-spy bag are super cute.

Also, I've tasted meepum's sugar cookies, and they are seriously the best in the world. They're like... perfection in cookie form!  Cheesy

My first time spinning and my first post on Craftster! I used roving in the Sargasso Sea colorway from Capistranofiberarts (etsy). I made 4 little skeins, but this is the one I was the most pleased with.= )



I think my evenness needs a little work, but I also know how to fix it for the next time I try. I haven't measured the yardage yet, but I'm pretty sure I didn't make enough to knit something substantial with. Any ideas on what I should make?
