Weaving has been on my crafty bucket list for a long time. Every time I go to the yarn store I am tempted by the row of rigid heddle looms, but the price tags and time commitment to learn how to use the contraptions have always made me keep on walking.
So, I was very happy to start my adventures in weaving with a simple project on the Clover Mini Weaving Loom. I decided to make something practical for my first project, a small, phone sized purse.
I felt pretty bold when I searched through my stash yarn for the project. I chose three contrasting colors of a basic, worsted weight acrylic, but you could easily use a different type of fiber and more or less colors.
Many thanks to my friends at Clover USA for providing the tools for this post. They are also sponsoring this month's giveaway so you could win the tools needed to make your own woven purse.
