What you need for weaving crafts with girls
- A loom is a frame where the fibers are woven on and she’s going to need a kid’s sized one. As an alternative, you can use some cardboard. Here’s a tutorial on how to make a cardboard loom to help you make one.
- For the fibers, you can cut out strips of some old clothing to practice. When she’s ready for thread-like materials, you can use wool, cotton, hemp or even silk.
- A shuttle holds the weft yarn and a comb is used to fit the weft yarn tightly together.
- A tapestry needle is used to cross the weft over and under the warp, but she can still use her hands.
- A pair of craft scissors
