A Different Use For My Scraps

 While surfing the net for ideas I came across some weaving classes on Craftsy. A few years back I got a loom for Christmas.  I hadn't used in a a while and decided to pull it out.  After a way to long visit on pintrest looking at woven items. I just get sucked in and before I know it an hour or more has gone by.  How does that happen? Well after that little diversion I warped my loom.  Pulled some scraps from my bins.  Cut them into 1" strips and started to weave.
The weaving process goes pretty fast once the loom is warped and before to long I had this table runner. I'm thinking it will make a nice gift.  I'm also thinking I need to warp my loom again and try another project.  Who knows maybe between quilting and weaving I might make a dent in the scrap bins.

  1. I assume weaving scraps is like weaving yarn, it eats up quite a bit. You may be on to something. Meanwhile, I like how your design has 'short rows' instead of just stripes. Great visual interest.

  3. That's awesome! If you don't mind me asking, what loom do you have? I love rag weaving and you're so right, it's a great way to use scraps. Did you sew your strips together or have them meet at the color changes?

  4. Very nice looking. When/if you get a chance, it would be nice to see photo of your loom and setting up process. : )
