Easy DIY – Clover Mini-Flower Loom
One of the great things about attending the CHA Mega Show is being able to see products before they become available in stores. As many of you know I love to make flowers. I like using them as embellishments and to make other crafty things. This year Clover has introduced Mini-Flower Looms. These little looms are so cute and easy to use. The package I got had the flower and the square loom. The back of the looms are open so you can sew in the center to be able to ensure they won’t fall apart after removing them from the loom. You can use yarn, metallic yarns and thin cords. I also saw them using the thick metallic threads. You are really only bound by your imagination. I am using the new Bon Bon packages by Lion Brand Yarn.
It’s easy to do. First choose a yarn, thick thread or cord of your choice. There are 2 slits on the side of the loom. These will help you secure your beginning and finishing rounds. Then you will wind the yarn around the pegs. You will be working directly across from each peg. I work in a clockwise direction. You can wind the yarn around the pegs 1, 2, of 3 times. I did it 3 times. Then when you have finished winding around all the pegs, you can put the tail back into the remaining slit on the side of the loom. Now, you will use your thread needle and thread with yarn of your choice. I used about a 20 inch strand. Now, you will sew back and forth making sure to get all levels of the yarn.. now move onto the next set of pegs. Repeat until you have worked all pegs. Now weave in your tail and cut. You are ready to slide the flower off the loom and cut the tails off the remaining two slits.
It’s that easy. Making flowers on your Clover Mini-Flower loom can become addicting.
