I've been wanting to learn how to weave for a while, and this year while I was in Arizona a lady was nice enough to not only teach me, but also let me borrow her inkle loom for a week or so. These are the ribbons I made, displayed chronologically, the first woven with random thread they had around and the latter ones with thread I bought myself.

I know these are nothing amazing, but I'm still pretty happy with them. I'd like to eventually get my own inkle loom and try out making belts and laces and such.

Thanks for looking.

Pretty. I never heard of an inkle loom and had to look it up. Now I want to have a go too.  Smiley

Bravo! Well done!

I should try the inkle loom myself, but I have so many things on my list already.

Have a good day!

Thank you muchly! Cheesy And it was a lot of fun -- plus side is it doesn't require too much of an attention span, you can get a ribbon done in an hour or two (well, depending on the size).
