Card Weaving on an Inkle loom?  What an awesome idea!!  I would imagine that it was much easier to keep the tension consistent!!

That's awesome! I'd love to do that, but... I don't really have money or space to have such equipment right now. Sad As always... "someday".

I've never thought these could be handmade!

Of course they can be handmade! That's how they were made in the old days.
These, for example, are called "guarda pampa" and are a traditional gaucho embellishment which were handmade by the "chinas" (peasant women): http://flickr.com/photos/silkegb/97124405/
The gauchos were the local cowboys in Argentina and south of Brazil. Oh, and just something interesting, the motif is quite obviously inspired by the sacred Incaic cross, the Chakana.

tattfae, you can totally make those now!

What a lovely work ! Is your inkle loom home-made ? I'd like to build one. I am about to build a warping board, so I was thinking I could do both at the same time...
