I started by purchasing this loom from Amazon and using yarn I had on hand. I followed this tutorial and pattern from A Beautiful Mess, and it only took me one night of TV watching to complete. I love the way it turned out!
Of course, Peanut wanted one to hang in her room as well. She picked the colors, all inspired by My Little Pony characters. I love her imagination!
I'm excited to try out some different patterns and a variety of yarn and fabric types. If you're looking for a creative outlet that is easy to learn, affordable, portable, and provides immediate gratification (all pluses for me), weaving may be the perfect craft for you. Oh, and it's easy to do while watching TV - another plus in my book.
Another quick project I crossed off of my baby room to-do list this weekend - a lamp shade re-do. This took me about 30 minutes, scraps of fabric from the crib skirt, and some hot glue. I love when middle-of-the-night inspiration strikes :)

Have a great week!!
