hi all!  Excuse me if this has been done a million times.  I'm new on this board, so if you lead me to another thread I will not be offended, and thanks!

Anyhow, I just ordered a 2 by 2 and a 6 by 6 weavette.  So I'm out $50...but excited...but what does one exactly MAKE with tiny and a big bigger woven squares?  I plan to use my own handspun on them, but any ideas as to what to make?

I have some ideas, but they are BIG ideas...such as a blanket.  Small ideas are fun!  I bought them b/c I saw the article on the little flowers in Spin Off (winter 2005). 

Any advice would be great!

I have made purses and phone and ipod cozies with my 12"square and triangle loom (not weavettes exactly but similar )   I've also made blankets.  The fun thing is that your little weavettes will be so portable.  Take them with you (like knitters take their socks Smiley ) and make tons of squares.  Then the possibilities are endless.   have fun with your new "toys"   Grin

There's also an article in a past Martha Stewart. I can't remember if it was Feb. or March, but I think it's the pink covered one...

You could also use them as patches/embellishments on projects.  I've also seen them used as a pocket.

When's the last time you were inspired?

I also bought the weavettes,  I thought I saw a pattern for baby booties, but I can not find it. Does any one have one?

weavettes were popular in the late 40's and if you google what they were called then (weave-it looms) up come a load of linkies with patterns.
The best pages IMO are the eloomanation ones:
etc, which contain the manuals which came with the looms, as well as projects.

Hello MissHawklet,

I have just bought a beautiful book about weaving in Perth Australia. It has been printed in 2007 and it is a lot more 'modern' than the usual weaving book.

WEAVE handmade style
Murdoch Books

They show you how to weave a blanket and a shawl and how to join the squares (crochet).
There is a pattern for a hat woven on a paper plate (disposable plate).

I love it  Smiley
