I have been enjoying weaving kitchen cloths on the Pro Size and Mighty Big Mamma potholder looms with old crochet cotton odds and ends that I have bought at Thrift Shops over the years.
The fabric that weaves up from the upcycled crochet cotton is lovely.
I decided to experiment with bias weave for the kitchen cloths (save those precious trees and use cloths instead of paper towels- yay!) and I love how it has turned out.
Here’s a link to the video showing how to weave bias on the Pro size and Mighty Big Mamma potholder looms- it’s really fun to weave, and the cloths are great.
If you’d like me to make a pattern for the woven Albert Einstein please let me know 🙂
Be safe and stay well!

How to carve a weaving hook from a chopstick
I am so delighted to introduce a wonderful, yummy new potholder loom:
The Mighty Big Mamma Potholder Loom 🙂
She’s a 36 nail potholder loom that weaves a 12 inch square.
The Mighty Big Mamma Potholder Loom is in response to people asking for a bigger potholder loom than the pro size (27 nail loom).
I thought long and hard about what would make the Mighty Big Mama a sweetheart of a loom to weave on, and Gary McFarland of Dewberry Ridge looms has put everything that I asked for into the making of her.
There are some tricks to weaving with the Mighty Big Mamma, so I am making a series of videos about her,.
The first video shows how to weave tabby (plain weave) in the ‘4 Square’ pattern with the help of a very pleasing shed stick.
Here’s the first video:
I love this loom!
