I made an extensive tutorial for Fiberworks. This is software to create weaving designs. I did this by making lots of videos, for which I give the contents here below with a short description of the subjects per video. I’m still working on it, because this software offers so many possibilities, that it takes a while to prepare and record it.

I was in a village or little town, Montesquieu-Volvestre, where we often did our shopping for groceries, and on one of these trips we walked around a bit, and we passed a store where they sold all kinds of household stuff. In the window I saw several crafting supplies, and there I saw this mini weaving loom from Clover.

For a while the last video in my pin loom weaving series! I will definitely be back with more, but I’m so into crochet and knitting at the moment, and making my own designs, that I want to do that first.

At the moment I’m working on a lovely honeycomb shawl. And a crochet wrap with a simple wavy pattern. I made the video’s for them, and they areRead More →

Introduction This is a sequel on the 2 previous tutorials about how to do a crochet border around your weave. You can find the first one, where I used slip stitches, here, you can find the tutorial where I used single crochets here. I use the US terminology, for the UK it’s double crochet. Take a look at these tutorial first, because they give a much more detailed explanation with a lot more pictures and drawings. This tutorial is an extension, to show you how to do 4 stitches per corner. You have 2 flavors in that, that I will show both. 2 Or 4Read More →

Introduction This tutorial is about finishing the edges of your weave with a border by doing single crochets. I’m using the US-terms here, for the UK it is called a double crochet. It’s actually the same tutorial as the tutorial with slip stitches (you can find that here), but now with doing single crochets. This is again an in depth tutorial, with lots of pictures and drawings. You can click on each picture or drawing to see a larger version. I made a video of this also, where I go into detail about whether you should do 2 or 4 stitches in the corners, andRead More →
