Thank you so much for the instructions!!! This is going to make me get into weaving  big time. I tried to make my own loom before, but I didn't know about heddles and whatnot--it was just a really big frame and I never finished my first project. Thank you again!

I need a loom... I need one sooooooo bad........  Wonder if I can find some stuff wide enough to make this work..... I'd love a 30" Ashford rigid Heddle... but for 300$!!?!?!  Especially if I can make one for 2$.....

... And here's what I made



As you can see, it's a bit wonky, I realised my tension was crazy slack at the beginning and crazy tight by the middle.  I will not do that again!

The colours are just what I had to hand at the time, and the pattern is just whatever came into my head!  I had so much fun doing this, and I've since learned I might be getting my hands on a friend's mother's old loom!  Hooray!!  Cheesy
