Find yourself a shoebox lid that is in pretty good condition.
I taped the corners for extra support.
Mark and cut equally spaced slits on both ends of the lid.
Lace your string back and forth to form the warp.
Tie your yarn to the first warp and begin weaving.
When you want to change yarn, simply tie the new one to the old one and continue weaving.
You can weave in any loose ends when your are finished.
Be sure not to pull too tightly at the edges so you don't get an hourglass effect.
When you are done with your last line, tie it to the last warp.
Now you can weave in those loose ends from the back.
Gently pull the weaving off each end of the lid.
Find some sticks or dowels to slide through the loops at each end.
And now you have a beautiful wall hanging for your room!
When I first showed this to Binky, he said no.
But as soon as I started he said, "I want to do it!"
After a few minutes he said he wanted to weave a rug for his room!
I highly recommend reading "Annie And The Old One."
The story goes wonderfully with this craft.
