Cooking up a colourful coaster!

Take one porridge oats box …

Scissors, sticky tape and a ruler …

Some colourful cotton yarn …

Hey presto! My first attempt at weaving! ๐Ÿ˜„ย The inspiration for this Blue-Peter-esque contraption came from the website of a hugely talented weaver, Kate, who shares her knowledge and creative passion atย The Weaving Loom,ย and by following her various on-line tutorials, I succeeded in making this 12 cm square coaster …

I’ve got a lot to learn, but I loved making thisย and I think I’m gonna need a bigger box ๐Ÿ˜‚

If you’d like to give it a go, or even if you’re an experienced weaver, I can highly recommend Kate’s site.

Have you dabbled in a new craft this week? I’d love to hear about it!
