I have completely re-done the how-to instructional pdf for the Star Loom that I designed and Dewberry Ridge Looms makes and sells. LINK
You can contact Donna McFarland if you would like the snazzy new pdf.
Or, if you send me a pic of you with your Star Loom as a pm, and your email, I can send you a copy of the pdf.
Why would I want a pic of you and your loom… well… I don’t have anything to do with the making and selling of the looms and I have no access to records about who bought them, so if you show me a pic of it with and you holding it, then I know that it’s a legit request :o)
I’ll delete the photo as soon as I send the pdf- I don’t have room on my computer to save extra pics!
One other thing- the new PDF is expanded, and is 13 pages.
I figured that since it was so big that there wasn’t enough space to re-do the wire star instructions.
Besides, so many people went: Blech to the thought of weaving with wire that I figured that there was no point in spending more days (it took me 2 days and one long evening to make this new pdf) making a pdf for something that people don’t want.
Anyhow, I hope that the new instructions will make everyone happy happy with their Star Looms!
I am so pleased! I’ve been working with Donna and Gary McFarland of Dewberry Ridge Looms to create some absolutely lovely new Heart Looms.
They are 4 inches and 6 inches and have a wider sett than the tiny 2 inch looms.
This means that you can weave thicker yarns, roving, fabric strips, t shirt yarn on them. Lots of eco-friendly options!
And on the 6 inch Heart loom, you can even weave potholder loops, too.
One of the first things that I did with them was to mend my much loved, and very well worn woven jacket by stitching and felting one of the hearts to repair a frayed section on the sleeve.
Here are the links to buy the looms:
Oops! I have been so busy that I totally forgot to make a post here on my blog about the Teneriffe Lace Bookmark.
Yup…. it’s been crazy busy here…. whew….. I’m working on one book, while doing revisions on another, researching the next one, writing and designing the techniques and projects for new looms that I have designed, as well as all kinds of family stuff…. yup…. busy!
I LOVE this Bee 🙂
She’s a combination of Teneriffe Lace and tapestry weaving.
She was woven on the Triangle shaped Teneriffe Lace loom that I designed and Dewberry Ridge Looms makes.
The looms can be ordered from: LINK

My wonderful son-in-law suggested that I design and make a Bunny for the Teneriffe Lace Weave Along to celebrate Springtime and Easter. He’s a genius!
Here’s the video showing how to make the Teneriffe Lace Bunny:

I love Mermaids, so of course, I had to design a Mermaid for the Teneriffe Lace Weave Along.
There are several ways to make her- you can use either triangles or dewdrop shapes for her fins and you can do the more tightly shaped lower body on the left or the wider body on the right.
If you don’t like the ‘Fairy Hair’ option, you can use the Dewdrop shape for her hair.
Here’s the video showing how to make the Teneriffe Lace Mermaid:
The Teneriffe Lace Weave Along continues with a Teneriffe Lace Angel.
I have always loved paper dolls, and when I was designing this angel and the fairy from the previous 2 posts, I felt like I was making Teneriffe Lace paper dolls!
The Teneriffe Lace Angel can be hung in a window or on a wall or in a plant or a Christmas tree or they can become part of a freeform lace project or stitched to a bag or pillow or curtain or garment….
The sky is the limit… wherever they take your imagination!
The components that are used to make the Teneriffe Lace Angel are all shown in how to videos in previous installments of the Teneriffe Lace Weave Along: L I N K S

In my last post, I showed how to make a Teneriffe Lace Fairy.
The video got so long that I decided to make the ‘Hair making’ video separately.
And, so, here’s the video showing how to make the hair for the Teneriffe Lace Fairies 🙂

The Teneriffe Lace Fairy is today’s installment of the Teneriffe Lace Weave Along.
I loved designing her and hope that you will enjoy making her.
She’s beautiful when made in other colors, as well as in plain white or ecru.
The Teneriffe Lace Fairy is woven on both the square Teneriffe Lace Loom and the Triangular Teneriffe Lace Loom.
The wings are made by using the ‘how to’ for the second Teneriffe Lace Butterfly: LINK
