Frame loom weaving projects don’t have to all be tapestries. You can create fabric and make beautiful pieces that you can use and wear! Frame looms come in all sizes – from big enough to weave a large statement wall hanging or a garment to small enough to hold in your lap while watching a movie with your family. And they’re very versatile!
First, to celebrate heading back to school, I offer 10% off the Maryanne Moodie and Beka Looms in my shop now through Labor Day. What can I make with these beautiful looms, you ask? For my book, Weaving Within Reach, I designed several unique projects that you can make with a Frame Loom. Here are some of my favorite projects.
When you make this gorgeous evening clutch, you’ll learn a new hemstitch technique! It might look difficult, but it’s really easy to do. Don’t be intimidated to give it a try! Weave the Trellis Hemstitched Clutch on a Maryanne Moodie Loom and you don’t even need a sewing machine. All of the stitching can be done by hand!
Who doesn’t love getting compliments from people about something you’ve made? People will stop you on the street to ask where they can get one of their own. They won’t believe it’s handmade! This tote pattern teaches you a fun color-gradient technique and it has just enough room to carry your laptop, an extra layer of clothing and all your Saturday shopping needs. Weave your own tote on a Beka 20” Weaving Frame Loom with the pattern from Weaving Within Reach.
I adore using handmade accessories in my kitchen. Make a woven hand towel and bring something truly special into your kitchen décor. Pick your favorite color to pair with a thin black window pane to make this beautiful Windowpane Hand Towel. They also make wonderful housewarming gifts! Creating this fabric on the Beka 20” Weaving Frame Loom is an amazing experience.
This striped pouch is simply lovely. Create your go-to pouch with beautiful fiber, like this from Camelia Fiber Company. Add a simple lining and zipper that you can finish everything off by hand (no sewing machine needed)! I love the idea of making something that holds other things that your making ? So meta! Make this on the Maryanne Moodie Loom.
Back to school time traditionally signals the end of summer, but there’s still time to make and wear the Triangle Tank Top. Add a modern pop to this romantic look with the fun woven triangles. Wear it on its own or layered under your favorite fall sweater. Pick your favorite colors and learn to create shapes in your weaving while using your Beka 20” Weaving Frame Loom.
This handmade wool pennant has so much whimsy and retro charm. Make yours with the Hey Lovely saying or customize it yourself to insert your favorite saying or phrase. It’s the perfect gift to inspire your favorite people! Weave this fun pennant on a Maryanne Moodie Loom.
I am so happy you are here! I am a maker and lover of beautiful things. Find DIY’s, patterns, projects and inspiration to endlessly delight you in your quest for a happy handmade life.
