Recycle a Skirt- Weaving on a Little Loom

Recycle a Skirt- Weaving on a Little Loom

Weave a Sweet Little Wall Hanging

I just can't throw out my old clothes. 

One- Because I remember all the fun things I did in them.

Two- I hate to think they're going to a landfill when they can still be used for something or other. 

Lots of my worn out clothes go to the something-or-other-piles: rags, or maybe rag rugs. 

But this skirt was just too soft and pretty for that. So I turned it into a little wall hanging. I love tiny hangings like this one, there's always some little nook it will fit in!

In this video series, I'll show you how I prepare the skirt for weaving, weave the fabric strips, add the beads, and finish it up for hanging.

I'll upload one lesson a week for about a month, so subscribe to my YouTube channel, and you'll be the first to know when the next lesson is ready for you.
