Loom-ing Improvements

August 21, 2011 at 8:37 pm 3 comments

First, I repurposed a quilting frame-

Then I rigged up a pedal thingee to control a heddle bar below the frame-

And finally, I found a shuttle lurking in a kitchen drawer-

(actually works better as a shuttle than it ever did as a spatula)

The treadle-operated thingee and shuttle are really speeding up my progress. So far I’ve got about 12 inches of fabric from my handspun leftovers.


And I think they look pretty cool. Mighty good use of spare bits. Maybe I’ll turn it into a handbag or something.

Handsome Frank says “Better get busy. I’ll have another 6 inches of fleecy goodness for you in no time!”

    And what a handsome man Frank is.
    Love all the innovations on the loom.
    I can see a purse with the woven yarn. Nice!

    Brilliant! I love how it is turning out. I’d never look at that and think leftovers.
