What I like about these projects is that they bring a coziness to the home in these winter months. I find my house is much more comfortable with textiles around, so for me the more the merrier.
This is the perfect time to start your project. I have projects that you can make quickly in a night or more involved weavings if you wanted something more challenging.
This cute ornament is quick and easy to make. It’s also a size that could be made on any size loom you have, no need to worry about your loom not being large enough! I used pops of bright fun colors in my ornament, but you can use whatever colors you like. And the best part is you can use yarn scraps! Find all the steps here.
If you dislike following patterns, these coasters are a fun way to play around with your yarn and make each coaster unique. This is a really fun gift to make for someone you love and you can weave the colors that they like best! The woven coaster steps can be found here.
I made two different types of curtain tie-backs, one is a macrame tie-back, it has a light and romantic design in a neutral color with frilly tassels. The other tie-back is made in a similar way, but with this one I made really colorful pom-poms. The pom-pom tie-back has to be my favorite, because I love the amount of fun and color it brings to my home.
The lacy weave that we made in the weave along is such a gorgeous wall ornament. It’s also a really fun weave to make! I posted details for each step of the way, from how to warp your loom all the way to how to prep a copper pipe to hang your weave from. If you would like to make this for someone special in your life, the steps start here.
Maybe you don’t have much time, but still want to make something fun and unique? I have steps for weaving on a wire basket. The yarn and the wire basket go so well together and you end up with a really cute storage basket. Plus it’s super quick and easy to make! The cozy basket steps can be found here!
We just finished up our simple weave pattern. I love this weave, it’s easy to make but looks so nice and classic! Plus once I framed it I loved it even more. This weave framed would be a perfect gift for someone who isn’t completely into the whole boho look of a woven wall hanging. By adding a frame, it adds texture to a wall, but in a modern way that most people can appreciate. Our simple weave steps start here.
So who’s making something handmade for their friends/family? I’d love to hear what project you’re working on, even if it’s not weaving related. A handmade gift is such a wonderful gift to give someone and so fun to make too!
