Re: How to Weave on a Cardboard Loom

Thanks. I enjoyed your write-up. I learned to use cardboard from my grandmother back in the early 50's; and Grandpa showed me how to do circle rag rugs on a wagon wheel rim. I use pinking shears for easy/even notches; then snip at bottom of notch to hold warp threads in place in my weaving kits. So much fun and easy to carry, also. For a bag with a flap: warp one side and fold up 1/3 of the way (with the warp string on the outside). Start weaving from the bottom until you finish the bag part, then weave only on the back-side of your loom. This will give you a bag with a small flap. Happy weaving!
