Introducing the Mollie Whuppie and Vasilisa looms

The enchanting little Thumbelina loom now has 2 big sisters!

I have designed 2 gorgeous new little looms and Dewberry Ridge looms are building and selling them.

I am just thrilled with them!

The Three Sisters are: LINK

And  her sister: Mollie Whuppie: LINK


And, the biggest sister: Vasilisa: LINK



What can you weave on Mollie Whuppie and Vasilisa?

Well, everything that you can weave on Thumbelina, but on a larger scale.

I’ve written an instruction booklet that shows how to weave techinques so you can weave:

Tapestry pouches:


Tapestry dolls:



Freeform tapestry ‘Weavies’:




Statement necklaces:


Prayer Flags:


Banners and bunting:


And, the Mollie Whuppie loom has a secret power!

She can mend socks!

You can’t make socks on the Mollie Whuppie loom, but the patches that you weave are totally perfect for fixing the worn out heels of precious hand knit socks.


Here’s a little video that explains the origins of Mollie Whuppie and Vasilisa’s names and shows the projects:

I love Mollie Whuppie and Vasilisa, and hope that you will, too!

I’ll be showing you more with them, in upcoming posts.

Happy Weaving!

Thumbelina Loom Clasped Weft weaving techniques

Clasped weft is one of my favorite weaving techniques.

I  have  developed a way of weaving clasped wefts on the Thumbelina loom  that is ingenious and fun!

Why weave with just one color in a row when you can easily weave with more?

Clasped weft weaving is a way of catching one strand of weft with another strand of weft to give you 2 colors in one row.

This allows you to weave all kinds of color patterns that can look quite complex, really quickly and easily.

This video tutorial shows how to weave several clasped weft variations on the tiny Thumbelina loom.

You can also use this unique approach on other small looms.
