Hi! I’m Ellen Luckett Baker from The Long Thread, where I write about sewing, crafting and DIY inspiration. I’ve also written a new book called 1,2,3 Sew, published by Chronicle Books and available now! Thanks to Cindy for asking me to contribute to Craft Camp again this year.
Today I wanted to show you how to shrink a weaving! Using a traditional weaving technique on a miniature scale, you can make tiny little weavings perfect for jewelry projects. This is a great activity for older kids or teenagers with good fine motor skills. An adult will likely need to help with the last few steps. Once you’ve made a few of these, you can try experimenting with different colors and designs.
