Fingerweaving Tutorial by fadedoak-craft Fingerweaving Tutorial by fadedoak-craft
Alot of my purses you see in my gallery (that are made out of yarn) are made by the process of fingerweaving.

It was a pretty uneventful day at work.. So yeah, decided to take my stubby fingers out and try to take point and shoot pictures with a SLR... It didnt work too well.

Its pretty elementry and I learned it when I was younger so its great for little kids and school programs but you can really make some awesome things out of this mega thick yarn product you have.

If you combine 2-3 yarns you can get something thick enough to make a blanket out of..
I have this tie method that I use to make things secure and such which I will show you once I have created about 20 ft of what I want.. (yeah, you can get about 6ft of goodies in one sitting..)
Enjoy!

I've seen these guys at a fair who fingerweaved with their own homespun rabbit fur. It's pretty neat.

This is really interesting! I've never done anything like this, but I think it would be a great way to kill some time on the bus, or between classes :love:

Thank you for making this!~
