This is my first weaving project on this loom, it's destined to be a table runner. However I would like to make other things beyond wall hangings, table runners and coasters-- any ideas? The width of the working area is 6 inches.

i have a table loom too.  weaving is actually what i went to school for.  with mine i have made and sold scarves and small bags and cozies.  anything you can make with small pieces of fabric you can make.  you can always sew your pieces together!  it's endless really.

With shipping it came to $50.10 from kidsurplus.com but search "brio loom" on eBay and you'll find some for much much less. You should be able to make scarves, a friend suggested that after I finish this I should make two panels and sew them together for a hat, I think I'm going to try it, but busy spinning more than weaving lately.

i like the idea of making a rug, kind of Mondrian style, by sewing different sized squares and rectangles together.

What about placemats?  What about making a handbag out of a folded long rectangle?  Fold it in thirds and sew up the sides.  THAT WOULD LOOK HOT!

Ohh, nifty!  How about belts, or cell phone holders?  You could make some really great (albeit small) handbags too.
