Here you can read about how to make a woven bookmark – it’s a great project for beginners and is a lot of fun to make!
What you need:
- Yarn or wool (variety of different colours)
- Medium weight cardboard
- Comb with large teeth or a plastic fork
- Weaving Needle
Step 1: Make the cardboard loom
Using the scissors, cut out a piece of cardboard that is 5cm x 12cm. You can make this shorter or thicker depending on how you want your bookmark to look. Then make small cuts on the top and bottom of the cardboard.
Step 2: Wrap string around the loom
Tape the string to the back of the loom, and begin wrapping the string around the loom. Make sure this is wrapped fairly tightly. The string should sit in the incisions that have been cut in the loom. After you’ve finished, tape the back of the string to the cardboard and cut the string.
