Small Loom Weaving
This is a 128 page book that is packed with information to get you started on small loom weaving projects. The projects that caught my eye was a wood branch weaving project with a v shaped branch. Each project has a difficulty level. It shows step by step images to help you create your own projects, along with the tutorial. This project is a level 3.
A starter craft weaving project would be the everyday coaster it’s a level 1 project. It’s a quick, simple project that even kids can do! Next, is a summer bracelet. Level 2. “The fun thing about weaving is that once you have learned the basic stitches and technique, you can get out of your comfort zone and try different things with your loom, says Anreia Gomes”
This is a full-color book that has a broad range of projects for beginning and intermediate weavers. Readers will even learn how to make their own starter loom out of a picture frame.
