Yarn arts and felting are two of today's most popular crafts, and popularity for weaving, a natural extension of those crafts, is growing. Small hand-held looms and tabletop looms are now available at yarn shops and hobby/craft stores, and readers of Free Form and Small Loom Weaving can even construct looms themselves using common household materials. Most looms can be constructed in a couple of minutes and can be reused numerous times.This book will also show readers how to use their looms. Included are several projects, some of which can easily be completed in an evening or weekend. Readers will enjoy step-by-step, diagrammed instructions for personal items, such as iPod and cell phone holders, scarves, purses, and jewellery, and home decor projects, such as pillows, table runners, wall hangings, and book covers.
