Clipboard Loom - First band finished
(click pics for larger image)
Here is the first finished band, 18 inch long, about 5/8 to 3/4 inch wide, using 17 wpi cotton thread. The upper part of the band in the picture shows where I began, just fooling around and the lower part is when I figured out the warp floats. To finish off the band I kind of did a loop back through the band.
Here I put the weft through, then put a crosstitch needle in the shed, then closed it and put the next pick through.
I cut the thread, put through the needle eye.
Then I pulled the weft through the band. I'll trim the thread at the band edge and may use some "fray-check" type of glue to hold the ends when I start making bookmarks with this loom.
Have a good day!
