Woven Book Mark
This week, make a woven bookmark to use when reading your favorite book.
1-2 pieces of sturdy cardboard
Yarn (1-3 types)
Measure 0.25 inches from each end of the cardboard (1).
Cut 8-10 tabs from the edge to the measured line (2).
To make the weaving easier, cut two pieces of cardboard and tape to the loom as shown (3).
String your loom with one type of yarn as shown (4).
Make a weaving loom with one type of yarn as shown.
Weave the yarn across the loom in an over/under pattern, when you reach the end of the loom, weave back to the start going "under/over" (6,7).
Keep weaving "under/over" and back all the way down the loom (10). Make sure not to pull to tightly, leave some slack or you’ll get an hourglass shape (8).
Cut the strings on the back of your loom. Tie the ends together, two pieces at a time (10,11).
You now have a finished bookmark! (12)
