Enter: The Flower Loom
After this post, I really wanted to get my hands on a flower loom. I yearned, I pined, then I got a 50% off coupon for JoAnn Fabrics and went off to buy one. I got the Hana-Ami Loom Set, which comes with six looms, a center pin, and a darning needle — all neatly packaged in a little snap-top case. After the initial excitement, I was left wondering what to do with my little flower creations. I had a hard time finding any projects on-line, so this is all I have made so far:
I hot-glued a bunch of daisies to a headband. I really think it looks cute, but I feel like a hippie wearing it. This will require some confidence to wear on a daily basis (I generally don’t like to attract too much attention). Next, I used a couple loom flowers and regular ol’ crochet to cover a bare stone I had sitting on the widowsill:
So, I suppose I’ll try to keep coming up with new projects (you know, besides brooches and embellishments) and I’ll share them here as they get completed. Here is the most helpful link I’ve found if you’re interested in getting a loom (or making one): Small Looms & Flower Looms. What are your experiences with flower looms? Have you seen any interesting projects? Do you have any innovative loom ideas? Please do share; I need some help brainstorming!
