What materials did you use? Cotton for the warp and recycled t-shirt yarn for the weft.

These were Christmas gifts for my friends at work - they picked their colors. I ordered the recycled t-shirt yarn from Etsy. I made 12 altogether. It was a lot of fun and I'm thinking to make more! :)

I low those. What a great gift idea.

Thanks! Everyone seems to love getting them! The weft is thick, so once the loom is warped, they weave up really quickly. :)

Thank you! They are really fun to make! And there are lots of videos on YouTube showing you how to cut your old t-shirts into one long, continuous strand of "yarn."

Ah, thanks for that tip on the videos, I'll look for them since I do have a lot of old T shirts saved.
