FUN WITH WEAVING by Alice Gilbreath


Email this review


Serious and careful directions for such schlocky projects as place mats woven from strips of shelf paper, plant holders from plastic bleach bottles, a clutch bag out of yam and a dishcloth, and a bird house or Easter basket of reeds. You can also spool-weave a snake or a coiled rug and, with a homemade cardboard loom, turn men's socks into pot holders, leather strips into pillow covers, and rug yam into coat hanger covers. There is one project, a wool scarf, which might at least be useful, but not even the handcrafts craze can turn all this nursery school busy work into a viable resource.
