Book Review: Little Loom Weaving by Andreia Gomes

Little Loom Weaving by Andrea GomesMany home crafters are finding that in a fast-paced world of instant gratification, handmade objects become even more valuable. Fiber arts like knitting, crocheting, sewing and quilting are on the rise again, and weaving is making a comeback. Although full-scale looms are a serious investment, little looms are a fantastic entryway to textile creations and they’re much more affordable.

Little Loom Weaving by Andrea Gomes

My Thoughts: For the past few months I’ve been looking around for a new crafting medium to try. I already know how to crochet, knit, do embroidery, quilt, scrapbook and a lot of other things. However, I’m getting bored and I’m ready to try something new.

As a newbie to this particular craft medium, I found the book to be super-easy to understand. I’m so glad that the author explains everything in terms that I can understand and in a manner that I can follow along. Each project includes the step-by-step instructions along with step-by-step close-up photographs to help guide you.

The beginning of the book is absolutely fantastic! She explains to you how to select type’s of yarn, how to select coordinating colors, information about yarn fibers & weight, a list of tools that you need and all kinds of other things that are perfect for beginners like me.

We’re getting ready to go on an extended vacation and as soon as we get back, I’m going to have my husband build me a small loom and I’m going to give a few of these projects a try.

Examples of Included Projects: Key Chains, Wall Hangings, Plant Hangers, Driftwood Board (I want to make that one!), Toss Pillows, Summer Bracelet, Beverage Coasters and more!
