Little Looms Winter 2023
Almost as long as there have been people, there have been stories to explain the world and entertain. In this issue of Easy Weaving with Little Looms, we’re translating some of our favorite folk and fairy tales from around the world into a language we all love: weaving!
Each of the 18 projects is a new weaving adventure designed around a beloved tale. Weave a set of suspenders inspired by Pinocchio on your inkle loom, or an embroidered pin-loom scarf fit for the snow queen herself. Celebrate the world-famous storyteller, Scheherazade, with the rigid-heddle woven Arabian Nights Placemats (no two are the same!). Weave up some cozy wool fabric before fulling it and turning it into a set of cozy mittens inspired by a Ukrainian folk tale.
In our feature articles, you’ll learn how to use 100% linen as a warp on your rigid-heddle loom without tears. As part of their new series, get the basics of tapestry weaving and what you need to get started from Claudia Chase and Elena Kawachi. In Do it by Hand, you’ll get step-by-step instructions for four different types of braids. Also, in this issue, Anita Osterhaug gives you the “full” story on fulling—the science behind it and tips on getting the best results for your project. These charming projects, enlightening tutorials, and more are in the Winter 2023 issue.
