Peg Loom Weaving Tutorial – Part One at www.elistonbutton.com - Eliston Button - That Crafty Kid

Hello there Buttoneers! If you caught last weeks ‘Workspace Wednesday – Weave It To Me’ post you will know that I have become a little obsessed with weaving, especially weaving on my wooden peg loom. If you don’t own a peg loom, I highly recommend buying one as I have had hours of fun weaving away on this one and the simple design makes it super easy to do. That said, I struggled to pick it up right away so whilst weaving one evening in from of the telly, I thought about whether I could make a tutorial, the sort of tutorial that I could have used when I first started out. 

So, here it is…well part one anyway. Who knew there were so many steps in making a weaving? I assure you though; they are super simple when broken down into small non-scary bite-size chunks. Part Two will arrive in next week’s Tutorial Tuesday. I wanted to split them so that you could practice the basics and get going on the main body of the weave before getting tied up (literally) with the tying off, weaving in loose ends and adding the hanging dowel.

If you are a super speedy learner then bookmark this post and run through them both together. I don’t in any way claim to be an expert weaver, but I am passionate about it and that’s the main thing…right!?  Enjoy!
