Hi, I am completely new to crafting, so please forgive me if this is in the wrong section! I also did a search, but go so lost.

I got a new bunny I would like to weave some sea/grass/hay/natural fiber mats for, she really likes her 2 beat up ones. However, I have no idea where to start? Where do I get supplies? How do I weave? I am so lost here, its not funny! I dont craft, but think it would be fun for her (and me!)

Thanks =)

If you have access to hay, you can probably weave up some mats for her to play with. I've never thought of weaving mats for rabbits. I had rabbits for about 10 years. I can see that they would LOVE it!

Weaving is basically placing fiber in a pattern, it doesn't matter what the fiber is.

Check out this website links for basic weaving information.

(4/13/08) Weaving for children. Try the notched cardboard loom ideas
from Montessoriworld.org. These projects have a simple set up but can be
fabulous! Great ideas for little hands. It even works for grownups!

Or the paperbasket weaving

Take a look and ask whatever questions you want.

Have a good day!
