I've always wanted to weave. My mother had a huge loom in the barn and all her friends from around the community brought her old clothing so that she could cut strips and make rag rugs. I have a couple small looms that I pulled out of the closet and stare at them often. How to start? What to use? I saw this photo and love this small project. A cute little coaster. I think I can do this. I have an old pair of jeans just waiting to be cut up.
Then today I saw this other link and video. The artist makes a loom out of an old piece of lumber and then shows us how she makes a beautiful scarf! Wow! How easy can a little coaster be!
