Sarah Swett has loved weaving since the age of eight, when she made magic carpets for her teddy bears. Now, as a professional tapestry weaver and knitwear designer, she shares the joy of creating beautiful woven items with a new generation of young crafters. In Kids Weaving, the only weaving book written specifically for children, Swett shows how to make 15 fun, inexpensive, colorful projects -- including friendship bracelets, a rag doll, a fashionable chenille scarf, magic carpets, and funky hand-woven shoelaces -- many of which can be completed in an afternoon.
With clear, step-by-step instructions and bright, helpful illustrations, Kids Weaving teaches children (and adults too!) how to weave using everything from their hands to cardboard to an easy-to-create loom made from simple plumbing supplies. Throughout the book are fascinating features about weaving around the world; special projects like weaving a hideout from sticks, branches, and wildflowers; and stories of famous characters such as Penelope, the clever weaver from The Iliad and The Odyssey. The third in STC's Kids Craft series (following Kids' Embroidery and Kids Crochet), this delightful, easy-to-use book brings one of the oldest craft traditions to creative children everywhere.
