I am so pleased! I’ve been working with Donna and Gary McFarland of Dewberry Ridge Looms to create some absolutely lovely new Heart Looms.
They are 4 inches and 6 inches and have a wider sett than the tiny 2 inch looms.
This means that you can weave thicker yarns, roving, fabric strips, t shirt yarn on them. Lots of eco-friendly options!
And on the 6 inch Heart loom, you can even weave potholder loops, too.
One of the first things that I did with them was to mend my much loved, and very well worn woven jacket by stitching and felting one of the hearts to repair a frayed section on the sleeve.
Here are the links to buy the looms:
I have been enjoying weaving tiny tapestries on the Thumbelina loom so much!

People have been asking me to show them how to weave tapestry techniques on the Thumbelina.

Here’s a YouTube video that I made to show some techniques and tips for weaving tapestries on the Thumbelina Loom.
I hope that this video will inspire you to try some fun things on your Thumbelina loom!
Here is the cartoon for weaving the heart shown in the video:
Print it so that each little template/cartoon is about 2 1/2 inches tall by 1 1/2 inches wide.
Here’s the link to order them from Dewberry Ridge looms. I designed the Thumbelina, but I don’t make or sell them. That’s not my strong suit… designing fun things to make with the tiny looms is! LINK
Thumbelina has her own page on Facebook, and you are invited to join:
Happy weaving! 🙂
