Okay, so I really just rediscovered this funky little flower loom an aunt gave me a couple years ago and decided to do some stashbusting and make some pins.

I think they are  cute- sales might be sketchy though. One idea might be to use yarns with different fiber textures in them for added flair & variety. Will be more expensive but hey you have to spend money to make money right? lol :-) Good luck!

those are awesome! i always wanted to know how to do that! is there any possible way you can post what the loom looks like? and i think you could totally sell them in your etsy shop. i saw a girl make some for cutxpaste.com and it seemed like she sold alot? but i'm not really sure

Thanks for the comments, guys.  I was planning to make some with different types of yarns, I just only had regular acrylic nearby when I made these.

Roxy, the loom is a plastic ring, with 12 outer spokes and 12 inner spokes that you wrap the yarn around and then you sew through the center of the yarn loops to make the center of the flowers.  It looks sort of like the Knifty Knitter round loom, but it's called a magni-fleur.  I tried to find a picture, but it's vintage and apparently not made anymore.  I couldn't even find one on google images.

if you search for flower loom or bloom loom, you should find alot of them.. Here's a link to a kit with them in different shapes and sizes:

I've also seen them on ebay.

Thanks soadchick.  Guess I didn't search hard enough, but that's it exactly.  Except I only have the two round ones.
