Hi everyone, hope you are all well.
A couple of weeks ago I found a nifty little flower loom at the local op shop, it was only $3 so I thought I would give it a go. I bought a heap of woollen offcuts as well. Well after the initial confusion of trying to follow the instructions, I kinda winged it a bit, and they turned out perfectly. They are so easy, and now I'm hooked! I have been making necklaces, brooches, and am planning to make a few small ones for some rings. The kids have even made a few too. I have to have a rest every so often though as it hurts my finger after a while.
While playing around I discovered that you can make a combination of a large flower with a smaller inner flower, which is cool and the small ones are so sweet.
Here is the final flower resting on my cushion (which I handmade with doilies).
Tomorrow, I will post my new bag that I made with doilies and embellished with a loom flower (Mr T said that I can't leave the house with it because it is too embarrassing..pffft :)
If you see one around I would recommend that you give it a try, they are fun to make, fast and easy too!
