some projects from this summer

For anybody interested:
I warped up the mh looms with warps ranging from 4" to 8" and had some rh looms with similar warps. The kids with the rh and mh looms all wover sashes and/or scarves. A few only managed enough for a little bag.
Cardboard looms were a real handy thing for the kids who wanted to make one more thing but there were no looms to hand them. I had bought a huge supply from Dick Blick and made some small ones. By weaving all the way around, the kids made little cup holders to go around a glass of milk or cola etc, or just could be used as a little bag.
There are a lot of simple projects for kids here:
