The Finished Mini Loom Project


Here’s my finished little bag. The back is just solid blue tweed with the same accent border, a row of soumak in white and then about ¾ inch of rust. After removing from the loom, I sewed the warp ends into the weaving for about an inch. To finish the top edge, I used a crochet needle to draw 4-ply through the fabrics securing them with the loop and trimming for a short fringe. The handle was made with the Incredible Rope Machine and sewn onto the finished bag. This is a great project to take with you as you travel this summer.


If you’re off to TNNA in Columbus be sure to look for Liz Gipson, our Sales and Marketing Manager and Judy Pagels, our Shipping Manager. They’ll be hosting our Schacht booth and are two great people to know. We’ll have new stuff in the booth as well: our new Wolf Pup LT, re-designed Flip and Cricket Looms, as our Flip Trap.
