Add a lovely set of open weave place mats to your collection of table linens. The texture of the fiber, whether it's tow linen or the cotton lanyard yarn, adds interest to this simple design. The kit comes with a mat-board loom so no need to buy a loom, yet it's sturdy enough to make a set of 6! I love that these are made with a made loom and are super fun to make for all ages. This is a fabulous beginning weaving project. Kit comes with a step by step video so I'll be with you every step of the way!
