For the last couple of years, I have been working on a new design for the potholder loom.
It’s for a Geometric Butterfly motif- and I have finally finished the pattern for it, and for a bag and wrap made using it.
I have listed the pdf pattern on my website on the potholder loom page LINK
The Geometric Butterfly motif is wonderful for bags:
It would also make beautiful prayer flags, pillows, afghans, vests, throws, wall hangings, table runners and whatever else your heart desires.
It’s a great way to showcase handspun yarns, but commercial yarns work just fine with it.
Tarn, or t shirt yarn is also great in the Geometric Butterfly pattern.
The pattern has full color step by step photos and diagrams, and comes with links to helpful videos.
There is a separate pdf that has all the step by step photos and instructions for how to weave all the different shapes on the potholder loom.
Isn’t it amazing what you can do on the simple potholder loom? 🙂

Many of your beautiful things, belong in an art gallery.
Thank you so much, Susan! 😀
I absolutely love the butterfly done on a potholder loom!!! Is it done in a single layer? Do the instructions show how to make the bags?
Hi Jan, Yes, the instructions are complete with step by step by photos and links to video how to tutorials. And, yes, the instructions do show exactly how to make the bag and the wrap.
Are the purse straps made with weaving sticks and an inkle loom? If so, are instructions included for these as well? Thank you. Love your work.
Hi Karen, the purse straps are woven on peg looms OR on an inkle. And, I made a video showing how to weave the geometric pattern on the peg loom:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KMWqNSHB-rw
Wow! How beautiful! The red butterfly on the black and white bag looks a bit like a bow tie on a suit.
Thanks, Aleksa 🙂 Actually, it’s hot pink, and after you said that, I went and looked at the photo…. it does, doesn’t it? In real life, the green embroidery and spool knitting shows up better, so it does look very butterfly like and not so bow tie-ish.
hi Noreen, I can’t connect to your butterfly pattern link. Any suggestions?
Hi Donna, Thanks for letting me know that the link was broken. I have fixed it, but just in case it goes wonky again, here it is:
