Loom Knitter's Classroom Blog Craftastical!: Tutorial: Loom Flowers (without the loom!) So, a while ago, I fell in love with loom flowers. They are such a cute accent, and you can use ribbon, raffia and all types of yarn and string to make them. I love them layered with other flowers to make accent pieces that can go in hair, on sweaters, on purses, anywhere you can clip them (Aubrey and I share and we have a ton of these things, we both love them!). A few weeks ago, we had Recognition Night for Activity Days (this is a basically like Cub Scouts for girls at our church). I'm an assistant leader and our theme was DOTS which stands for Depend on the Savior. It was totally cute, with a dot garland, dot cupcakes and dot everything. I wound a bunch of loom flowers, had some of my scrapbook flowers and buttons, and a the large polka dot flower I sewed. Anyway, I have some looms that I bought off Etsy that work really well, but my kids broke off some of the prongs from the size I needed, so I had to improvise. First, you need a piece of styrofoam. Pull taut. Finished flower:

Does Not Compute! Awesome Masks Made From Old Computer Parts | Gearfuse All it takes to make a sick Sci-Fi adventure is some recycling prowess. We could so see these masks used in a motion picture. And to think they were made using random electronic shit lying around someone’s house. Imagine a movie like this: The world is on the brink of collapse after a group of amateur garage robotic builders produce an indestructible gang of robotic monsters to control the world. I picture their faces looking something like these. — Andrew Dobrow Link [via] eLoomaNation :: Projects Tools 4” x 6” rectangular loom 6” weaving needle yarn needle for seaming scissors Yarn Linen or hemp sportweight, about 25 yds. instructions 1. Weave two rectangles in the pattern below, weaving in ends before you remove them from the loom. 2. Place wrong sides together. (Front and back are different!) Windowpane Lace (Weavette book of patterned weaves calls this “Corduroy”.) The graph below illustrates this pattern. Rows with light gray squares are NOT INCLUDED in row count, since they are already on the loom. White squares represent the vertical warp threads that are visible. Again: White=visible warp. The threads wrapped around outside of pins are not included in the count or shown on the graph. The pattern repeats all the way to the top, but because the square or rectangle must end with plain weave, there will be 4 plain weave rows at the end.

WeaveZine Summer 2008 Recycled Plastic-Bag Weaving I have a considerable yarn stash of wool, cotton, linen and silk, carefully stored in baskets and on yarn trees. But to my surprise, I’ve come to regard hundreds of plastic bags, stored in a big floppy cardboard box in the garage, as part of this stash. The box holds newspaper bags, shopping bags, grocery bags, and every other plastic bag that I’ve brought home or collected from family and friends for the past several years. (They know I’m a packrat.) In an attempt to reduce the size of this collection and keep them out of landfill, these bags are reused and recycled. This article sponsored by: [[ad|nids=415]] Plastic “yarn” tutorial Turning a plastic bag into one continuous strand can be done with scissors, but it’s easiest to use a rotary cutter and self-healing mat. Turn the bag on its side, with the open end to the right (or left if you’re left-handed). Some bags have a heat-sealed fold at the bottom corners. Ta Da! Plastic-bag yarn can be used as weft on a traditional shaft loom.
