This was the first project of the day off the loom!  The hem stitching is done – now this camper wanted to turn it into a pillow.

Embroidering.

But first she wanted to embroider her name on it.  What a great personal touch!

All done!!  This is such a fantastic pillow – the fabric was completely woven by her, embellishment added, and hand sewn together.  Simply a great job!

A scarf that had been previously finished, needed the addition of beads to the end.

And so did this camper.

Starting a pin weaving project.

Once, this student’s pillow was done, there was not time to warp up another project on the loom.  So…we made a little pin loom so she could do some pin weaving.

Ta-Da!  Another mat hot off the loom!

Success!!  A finished pillow!  Look at those specialty stitches – they are quite time consuming as they require the manipulation of the loom threads entirely by hand.  Great Job, Weavers!!
