It's very pretty.  Would you please post a picture of the loom if you have a chance?  I have no idea what it is.

This is great.  Chuck should build these for you to sell.  I had never heard of an inkle loom.  Never saw one, but love the work that comes from it.  Love that pink.  What other kinds of things can be created using this loom or a bigger one.  Maybe Chuck could make us all one.   :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

you can make pretty much anything...the number of wraps you put on the loom determines the width, so I can make anything from a bracelet (or many bracelets, lol) to table runners to placemats.  Next I want to learn how to create patterns...but...no new crafts till after Christmas. lol

I too fell in love with inkle weaving at a living history event. I could not afford to buy a loom so I built one for less than $20.00 and have been using it for over ten years. Your work look great. If you have any questions I would be glad to help you. I mad and sold sashes and leg ties at living history events and now I make dog leashes and collars, shoulder bag straps.

It looks like quite a contraption!  But the belt that came off of it is really cool!

I have never heard of an inkle loom!  I have often thought it would be fun to do weaving, but really have never had room for a floor loom - but this looks interesting!

Sorry that I did not get back to you sooner, I am just getting this site figured out. You can use anything from fine silk to heavy wools/yarn. I use acrylic yarn mostly worsted weight, wool, and cottons. It depends on how fine or bulky you want it to come out.
