Weaving with Little Handmade Looms

Make Your Own Mini Looms & Weave 25 Exquisite Projects

«

This is a sweet book with great weekend craft projects. It has projects an older child or teen could manage on their own (although they may need a little help making some of the looms). I particularly liked the flora wrap bracelet and my kids have demanded clamshell pouches! A lot of the bits and pieces you need for the looms are things that you (well, me anyway) will have around the house so no specialist equipment is needed. I can’t wait to have a go at making some of these cute little projects.

Om forfatteren

Harumi Kageyama graduated in art and design at the Nihon University College in Japan. After initially pursuing an editorial career, working for magazines and journals in a variety of fields, Harumi decided to return to her first love and began designing and making handcrafted items in cloth, wires and more. Her work focuses on simple materials such as wool, fabric and driftwood, and she places great value on designs that are simple and sustainably sourced.



Harumi now writes a successful blog in Japan and runs regular workshops on weaving and other crafts. She is also the author of several textile and handmade, eco-friendly interior design books published in Japan, and her work is slowly becoming recognized worldwide.



Harumi lives in Osaka, Japan.

When I was a child I made a loom out of an old picture frame, and wove an Alice band on it. This innovative book shows how you can weave all kinds of small items on looms made from boxes, cardboard tubes, wooden boards, twigs or just card.

Anybody who regularly reads my reviews will know I am always looking for new ways of recycling things, and here is a good one. Weave outside using yarn and twigs, cut out card circles, roll up card or hammer nails into wooden boxes or (like me) old frames. With a table fork for a beater, crochet hook and tapestry needle, hammer and nails you will probably be able to make any of the looms, all of which are so simple to make that instructions are kept to a minimum. There are plenty of clear photographic steps to stringing the looms, weaving and finishing off, and of course projects. Cover buttons, weave mats, create jewellery, wall hangings, napkin rings, wallets, bunting and more (no Alice bands). My favourites have to be the tote bag and matching clutch purse, showing that you can do a lot with a little. The threads used include all kinds of yarns but also ribbons, strips of suede and even chenilles (pipe cleaners). The projects have clear diagrams and instructions; if you are new to this sort of thing I advise starting with the simpler looms and items first. Recycling has never been so much fun!

This book is a treasure-trove of ideas for weaving interesting small projects on very simple looms. It was originally written in Japanese, but the translation is so good that you really wouldn't notice. The book is subdivided into board looms, round looms, box looms and frame looms. The examples given use simple, everyday objects (twigs, cardboard, rolled fabric, cardboard boxes and off-cuts of wood) to make the looms. Additional tools include glass-headed sewing pins, darning needles, scraps of yarn, wooden skewers and disposable wooden forks. So, things lying around your home. 

The instructions are clear and there are many helpful illustrations. A friend and I have already use some of the suggestions to demonstrate weaving to children and adults at a recent drop-in workshop at a local venue. There are more ideas that we would like to try in the future.

If you work with children, demonstrate to the public or are intrigued by small projects, this book is an excellent resource and I recommend that you find space on your bookshelf for it.
