1  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Discussion and Questions / small floor loom recommendation on: May 01, 2010 01:00:45 PM
I'm looking for a small floor loom. Anyone have a personal recommendation?

I'm looking to trade my floor loom for a smaller one. I have a loom built in the '70s that was originally for physical therapy. It has a weaving width of approximately 45". It is a four harness, six treadle and in great condition. I'm looking for something smaller with about half that weaving width. I'm willing to trade if anyone is looking to upgrade to a larger weaving width.

So cute! And I love the fabric choices.

kissing.shadows - I thought that too. I'm surprised how hard it is to find blank onesies that aren't pink! Any ideas where I could get some?
fairieknits - I used this as a guide - http://madebypetchy.blogspot.com/2008/06/tutorial-10-minute-trousers.html with a pair of pants that fit her. I just made them longer and a little bigger at the top since the fabric from the napkins wasn't stretchy. This is the best way to make pants for kids. I have used it about 15 times now for these pants and some for my son who is two.

My hubby outgrew a pair of old jean shorts but they were in otherwise good condition so I hated to get rid of them. I ended up making a pair of pants for my son. They just have elastic around the waistband and this gets a bit bulky in the back b/c the pockets are back there too. But I think they are really cute b/c they are very wide. He seems to like them too. Sorry there isn't a better detailed picture...this is the only one I could get!

**Here are a couple of pictures of the back to show you what I meant about the pockets. Again...I used Petchy's awesome ten minute pants tutorial as a base for these. Now if I only had an old Jncos patch...

So my son REALLY likes Target and Best Buy. I found this huge box and thought I could make him his own version. It has ended up also being a nice step stool so that he can turn the light on in his room  Grin

The Pier One close to me recently went out of business and I picked up some fabric napkins on the cheap. I couldn't decide what to do with them until I thought of making some pants for my daughter. She's 4 months now and they have fit her for about a month now. My only problem is finding shirts that they match! I just guessed on the sizing b/c the only other pants she had were stretchy.

Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately, hemstitching won't work because the weft is little sticks. I ended up just knotting them and I think they look okay Smiley Thanks!

I know what you mean! I have also had trouble sizing these for my daughter. You did a great job though! I love the frills.
