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.

Lucet techniques- 6- Celtic Interlace Hearts

This is the 6th how to video in Noreen Crone-Findlay’s series of Lucet technique tutorials.

In this video, I show  how to make gorgeous Celtic interlace hearts that you can use to embellish woven, knitted, crocheted or sewn fashion accessories or home decor items.

They are also great for scrapbooking and can be used on stationery.

They are perfect  Valentines or as Christmas or birthday decorations and ornaments.

Another wonderful way of using these Celtic Interlace hearts is to hang them up as ‘Yarn Bombs’ for people to find and adopt. What a lovely way to brighten someone’s day!

The video shows how to make different sizes of the Celtic Interlace Heart.

Here is the template- print it out so that it’s about 5 inches square, but smaller or larger works just fine, too.

Spool knitted cords work fine for making the Celtic interlace hearts, too.

Here is the video tutorial:
