Hello, all !   Just wondering... Are there any uses for a hexagon loom above and beyond coasters, placemats and pot holders? I basically wanted to know if there was any other application that you could use it for other than something that is completely flat... I don't have any experience with weaving at all but I found a kit at my local Thrift Store for $5, one of those Love & Money Kits. It looks like great fun. I just wanted to see if there was anybody who took this type of loom and just ran with it...either here on Craftster or in a book somewhere...

Thank you.

I've seen blankets made with the hexes, like a six sided Grannie square blanket.  And I saw a ball made with a smaller size hex then crocheted together and stuffed for a child's toy.

Beyond that... no clue.

Hi,  I personally have the hexagon and the rectangle looms.  It has been some years back but I made a shawl for my mother-in-law.  Even got the kids doing them back then......LOL.  I like the idea of a purse or tote.  Good Luck Smiley

Hi!  I was just searching the net with the same question in mind.  A tote would be a cool idea.  I did made some coasters out of wool and felt them.  They came out okay. 

I'm also thinking of using t-shirt yarn (i cut the shirt up myself) and making potholders, or sewing them together to make a cool rug.

I just got an old loom from my grandma and it is only the coaster size one.

I used to have a set of those when I was like 10. I wish I knew where they were, I proabably broke them.
Anyway, one of the best things I ever made was a lion pillow. I made two big hexagons, stitched them togehter and stuffed them with a hexagon shaped pillow. Two little hexagons for ears. Two for the cheekies, and then some sewing and fringe. My mom LOVED it. I wonder if she still has it.
I'm sure you could get other animals like that.

I dont weave...but if they are anything like the hexagons or other motifs that you crochet, you can make anything from sweaters to blankets from these individual units/shapes. But you had better really like sewing/peicing.
