A little cardboard loom came with the latest issue of CRAFT:zine. Well, it's the part that raises and lowers the warp. Has anyone else tried it? Is it just really really floppy or am I doing it wrong?

I'm looking for a bunch of different buttons, and can swap nice yarn for them ^_^

I saw it on the news stand and it looked floppy. Maybe if you laminate it or copy it to some stronger cardstock? Actually it might work in foamcore if you cut out the foamcore neatly.

Good Luck

Even an old cardboard or chip board. It seemed to flimsy to me too so i was thinking of using it as a template for cardboard.

Seemed really floppy to me as well. But it seemed like if you stabilized the top and bottom parts by gluing something like a chopstick to them that that would help. However, I got lazy and decided not to try it...   Wink
