Learning to weave on a peg loom

My sister just gave Ivy a Peg Loom weaving kit and it’s been really sweet watching Ivy learn to weave this summer. She’s intent on making herself a little handbag, which is one of the projects recommended in the loom kit. I’m kind of hoping we can buy some pretty yarns and make some weaved wall hangings, perhaps with some driftwood found on the beach (I was feeling inspired yesterday when I saw this photo on Instagram). In either case, it’s a great summertime project (for both of us).  The PegLoom kit comes with everything you need to get started, including yarn and a weaving needle.

She’s worked so neatly, what a good job. I want to have a go at this with my daughter now. If she’ll sit still long enough….

Well done Ivy, hope to see you wearing your handmade bag soon!

What a thoughtful gift! How old is your daughter? Just wondering what would be a good age to start.

thanks for sharing this
I’ve had this very loom on a wishlist for awhile not sure whether or not to purchase.
I will!

My son found one and revived it a couple of weeks back – but it had no instructions.He has a beautifully woven piece of “fabric” but we couldn’t figure out how to finish it off… once it is off the loom what do you do with the loops, that went over the pegs? I am guessing google is our friend!!!
