Sweet little heart loom

A couple of weeks ago, I designed a tiny pinboard loom to weave little hearts- Here’s the link to that post HEARTS

I just loved the little hearts that I wove on the pinboard loom, but didn’t really like holding the foam in my hands while I wove.

I asked Donna and Gary at Dewberry Ridge Looms if they would make some heart looms, using my design, so other people could weave wee perfect hearts, too.  (Gary’s work is FABULOUS!  I love their looms) 🙂

They said sure, so Gary set to work and they now have lovely little heart looms!

I am just enchanted with the little heart loom- it’s beautifully made and is a treat to hold in my hand, and a pleasure to weave on.

I am thinking of all the wonderful ways of using the woven hearts… ooooooooh yes!!!!

I won’t be selling them, so you’ll have to go to their website to buy one. Here’s their link:  HEART LOOM

I have some fun projects in mind, and will post pics as soon as I get them done.

I think that I will probably make a video tutorial specifically about weaving with this little loom.  (One more thing for the ‘to-do’ list!)

Happy Hearts!

Video tutorial on how to weave a heart shape motif on the Martha Stewart Loom

I have been designing for and experimenting with the Martha Stewart loom, and just love it.

One of the things that I have figured out how to do with the Martha Stewart Loom, is how to weave a heart shape motif on it.

It’s a little tricky, so I have made a video on how to do it.

I felted some of the woven hearts, and they are really neat…. the do get smaller as you felt them!

What can you do with a woven heart?

They can be used as placemats on their own, (especially if they have spool knitted cord stitched to the outside), or they can be stitched to bags, scarves, stoles, shawls, pillows, throws, wraps, afghans, blankets, jackets, vests, stitch 2 together as a toy….

Hearts are the symbol of love, so perhaps, you can just weave one for the love of it! 😀
