Overview

30 projects for home decor and fashion accents

Yarn arts and felting are two of today's most popular crafts, and popularity for weaving, a natural extension of those crafts, is growing. Small hand-held looms and tabletop looms are now available at yarn shops and hobby/craft stores, and readers of Small Loom and Freeform Weaving can even construct looms themselves using common household materials. Most looms can be constructed in a couple minutes and can be reused numerous times.

This book will also show readers how to use their looms. Included are 30 projects, some of which can easily be completed in an evening or weekend. Readers will enjoy step-by-step, diagrammed instructions for personal items, such as iPod and cell phone holders, scarves, purses, and jewelry, and home decor projects, such as pillows, table runners, wall hangings, and book covers.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Matthiessen, Barbara. Small Loom & Freeform Weaving. Creative Pub: Quayside. 2008. c.128p. ISBN 978-1-58923-361-4. pap. $19.95. FIBER CRAFTS Purchasing a large, expensive loom is cost prohibitive for many novice weavers, and Matthiessen provides a variety of less expensive alternatives. Her solutions range from a homemade loom constructed from hair combs, dowels, and duct tape (yes, it's as primitive as it sounds) to commercial products such as Weavettes and the Ashford Knitter's Loom, a rigid heddle loom marketed to knitters. Matthiessen covers all aspects of weaving, including warping the loom, basic techniques, and finishing. Her low-cost approach to weaving will attract those curious about this ancient craft. Recommended for public libraries. - Library Journal, August 2008

    for those that have a knitters loom

    This gives some inspiration to those of us that have a knitters loom. The previous books I had spent their time only with scarves. I was looking to make other things and needed some where to start. Now that I have this book, I think I can come up with some of my own ideas, too. I just needed the little push of the pitures and ideas in this book. It is worth buying to help inspire. Also is nice from a practical point of view....has a section on technique that is most helpful.
