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. 

This project is pretty simple and quick to make. I remember when I was in school, I made a woven coaster using fabric leftovers in art classes. I was twelve years old. I’m sure everyone can make this project and I think it is a fun project to make with your kids.

MATERIALS:
