Trending: Wild About Weaving by Christen Olivarez

No reviews yet

As crafters, we know that many of the creative trends of the ‘60s and ‘70s have been making a comeback. There are some that make me shake my head and wish them back to their original decade, but there are others that have instantly caught my attention. More and more in my Internet searches, I stumbled upon woven wall hangings. They had a retro vibe, but they were created with more modern color palettes and designs. However, weaving looms can be costly to purchase and time consuming to make, so I held off on indulging another one of my creative urges. When I saw these great cardboard looms, I couldn’t wait any longer.

I searched how to set up the loom, grabbed some of my ever-growing yarn stash and got to work. Over-and-under I worked while watching my current Netflix obsession. I felt like a kid again, only this time I was working on a little wall hanging instead of a potholder. The first wall hanging I made was very basic with just a few stripes, but I’m now working on incorporating different types of fiber and fabric strips as well as playing around with geometric shapes.

If you’ve wanted to take the weaving plunge, I suggest jumping right in. The cardboard looms are light and easy to transport, making this a great project to take wherever you go. Weaving is also a great way to play with new color palettes. Once you start, you’ll be hooked!
