A simple way to learn how to weave is by creating your own loom out of cardboard box – the perfect loom for creating a unique woven bag! Once you’ve enjoyed the pleasure of creating your own loom from something you would otherwise throw away you’ll never look back! Weaving on a box is straightforward, exciting, and a great way to use up bits and pieces of yarn. It is not, however, fine or fast.
