Loom Flowers



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!

@Debbie Hi Debbie, Thank you.

I know, they (men) always grumble about everything but are as proud as punch when a few compliments roll in, ha ha :)

bye, Tamara
