There are 4 ‘Foundation’ shapes (and a bunch of supplemental shapes) for the Teneriffe Lace projects that I have designed to be made using 2 tiny looms that are available from Dewberry Ridge Looms. (see the link below for info to order the looms)
Today’s installment in the Teneriffe Lace Weave Along is ‘How to Weave the Basic Square Teneriffe Lace Motif’:
For the complete list of posts in the Weave Along, please click on the link below…. note that it is constantly being updated.
To make Teneriffe Lace, you need to have a flat, sturdy pin cushion that the loom sits on.
Here’s the list of equipment and materials that you’ll need to make your Teneriffe Lace Pin Cushion:
1- Corrugated cardboard
2- Sharp craft knife (do NOT use dull knives and always cut away from yourself)
3- A cutting board
5- Fabric and felt to cover the pin cushion and to make the base
6- Needle and Thread
1- Cut 8 circles of cardboard that are 4 inches/10 cm in diameter for the larger pincushion for your square loom.
2- The triangle loom works fine on a 3 1/2 inch/8.75 cm diameter pin cushion. Cut 8 circles of corrugated cardboard for this pin cushion. Note- in the video, I only cut 6 for the smaller pin cushion, which is okay, but 8 circles are better.
Now, the video shows how to put it all together:

Happy Lace Making! ❤
I absolutely love making Teneriffe Lace, and have designed a set of lovely little looms and a whole bunch of delightful projects to make with them.
I am making a series of ‘how to’ videos that show how to make all the shapes, and then how to use them to create lovely projects.
I’ll place the links to the blog posts that have the how to videos and diagrams on this post to make it easy for people to click on the one that they are looking for.
I designed the looms, but don’t have the time (I am working on another new book as well as a solo show of my new Woven Women- wow… busy!) or the equipment to be able to make the looms, so I have asked Donna and Gary McFarland of Dewberry Ridge Looms if they would make the looms.
Hurrah! They said yes!
