Our small dog inspired me to weave a clip on pouch to carry hand sanitizer.
She picked up a chicken bone when we were walking and I had to stick my fingers in her mouth to get it out.
Oh, so in need of getting my hand cleaned off quickly!
I decided that NOT having to stick a messy hand in my pocket was a great idea, so I came up with clip on pouches to carry hand sanitizer.
Then, I wove up a stack of potholder squares to play with different ways of exploring color and texture and also different kinds of hanging loops.
I also figured out different ways of connecting clips, toggles and clamps.
This is a quick and easy project and would make a great gift!
Here’s the how to video:
In my previous post, I showed how to weave 2 Step Fine Sett Weaving on the potholder loom working plain weave.
This video shows how to weave Twills on the Potholder Loom, using the 2 Step Fine Sett Technique for Twills.
So many possibilities!!! Woohoo!
I love to expand the creative possibilities of small loom weaving, and so one way that I have done that is to develop a technique that I call the ‘2 Step Fine Sett Weaving Technique’.
Here’s a video on how to do plain weave (aka ‘Tabby” weave) on the potholder loom:
This technique is just sooooooooooo good….
Weaving with yarn on the potholder loom gives so many options for creative colorwork.
This video tutorial shows how to use just 2 colors of yarn to weave all kinds of checks and ‘plaid-ishes’ (yes I made that word up LOL) and how to stitch the squares together.
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!
