In Little Loom Weaving (Ulysses Press, 2017) by Andreia Gomes, she utilizes her background as an interior designer to teach unique techniques on weaving for those just starting out and for those who have been weaving for years. Her book has everything you need to create trendy and timeless woven pieces on a small, portable loom.

When I started my journey through weaving, I didn’t wanted to invest in a professional loom to learn the basics. I searched online and realized that I could easily make my own loom at home without spending much. I started with a cardboard loom, using just a piece of reused cardboard, tape, and a cutter. After I learned the basic stitches, I realized I needed a more stable and resistant frame to work that was at the same time portable and easy to use. I made my own frame loom, and now I will teach you how to make yours.
