This time I strung up the Structo Artcraft Loom for plain weaving. These are not nearly as involved as the Tennessee Mountain patterns; so, I can sell them cheaper than the covelets. When you string the loom for plain (tabby) weaving, you are very limited as to different patterns. Part of this rug's pattern is the two stripes of navy blue thread strung up as part of the warp. The ends are hand stitched to keep the weaving from ravelling. This one is woven of white cotton for the warp and magenta shaggy Gala yarn for the weft. It would make the perfect blanket for any small doll. Our beds fit Ty's Li'l Ones dolls, Amelia Thimble, Barbie's Kelly and friends, or any 6" or less doll.
I actually made 8 rugs in this weaving, 3 are left. Hope you see them all before deciding how many to buy. I have bedding, table linens, rugs, beds, miniature dresses and more. All the handmades in my shop were made in a smoke and pet free home. I feel that this item is made sturdy enough for an older child to play with.
