Q&A with Gwyn Hug

kscarrie asked:
Very cool! Those look great! =)
Gwyn Hug answered:
Thanks! :)
margvh125 asked:
I low those. What a great gift idea.
Gwyn Hug answered:
Thanks! Everyone seems to love getting them! The weft is thick, so once the loom is warped, they weave up really quickly. :)
pekingduk asked:
Very cool project, love this! Great colors, great idea.
Gwyn Hug answered:
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."
pekingduk asked:
Ah, thanks for that tip on the videos, I'll look for them since I do have a lot of old T shirts saved.
